The film depicts a Soviet family of the professional class. The head of the family, Fyodor Ivanovich, is a doctor and lives with his son, Boris, and daughter, Irina. His mother and nephew Mark also live with the family. The film centers on Boris's girlfriend, Veronika, and her experiences in wartime. She is nicknamed "Belka" ("squirrel"). The call to war sounds, and the country responds with great patriotic fervor. Boris volunteers to defend his homeland from the attackers, much to Veronika's sadness. He leaves for the war, and is killed under the birches (pod beryozonykoy) in a swamp, saving a fellow soldier. However, he is listed as missing in action and neither Veronika nor his family know that he has been killed.
