The title...was taken from a poem by Mayakovkey and its theme is the speeding up of time in the Soviet Union where the historical development of a century must be completed in ten years, The Heroes are described as 'being unable to trust such a valuable thing as time, to clocks, mere mechanical devices'. Kataev adapted it as a screenplay, which was filmed in 1965."
