About the film

  • Best Cinematography Award at the All-Union Film Festival in 1970

Neighbourhood children play a game: one of the kids dances in the centre of the circle while the others shower him or her with compliments or sneering remarks. A little girl Inga, who lives with her single mother, is friendly and honest. She usually receives a lot of compliments and is therefore considered a beauty. Everything changes when a new boy moves into the neighbourhood. Being rude, he does not fit in and soon earns himself the nickname Mute. He does not like Inga’s freckles and calls her ugly. Mute’s words hurt Inga deeply and she sets out to look for ways to become more attractive.
