Synopsis. After the end of the World War II, Soviet soldiers come to a small town in Germany. A lot of buildings are ruined and there are still sounds of bomb explosions and whistling bullets. Young Kazakh soldier saves an old civil German man from death and helps him to hide in a safe place. The old man gives him a bag with the most valuable thing that he has–a portable projector and some films. Thirty years later, the former soldier becomes a legendary figure. He travels to small distant villages and pastures to show films. He spends his life travelling from one village to another, from house to house. The children call him Tarzan, because of the film TARZAN that they like so much. But professional cinema theaters come to big and small cities replacing our Tarzan who moves to more remote villages.
