The story of love between two young people: the boy is torn by doubt and wants to avoid becoming average - one of the many "rats" in the chase for material wealth. He thinks seriously about entering a monastery and is afraid of the toils of everyday life. The girl goes to night school and earns money as a dressing room attendant on film sets and during fashion shows. She honestly fears that she may be a barrier to the boy's self-fulfilment. She also wonders if she should not encourage him to be bolder in life.
