By a miracle, a fair maiden appears in the boat. She reassures him. Anglers salvage Harvey. There is a charming girl among them: Daisy. They tell him the legend of the nocturnal rescuer, Frasie Grand, who rushes through the waves. All sailors in distress have regarded her as a symbol. People have raised a monument to her. By the end of the carnival, Harvey sees yet another crime in progress: the demolition of the Monument to the Hurrying through the Waves. He is the only one to confront the rampaging mob.

An old Russian-Bulgarian film talking, I think, for the most romantic male psyche. Not accidentally the main actor is a pianist who has to perform 31 concerts in 31 days. More on the twelfth day, he feels very tired. On the way to the next gig, he gets off the train, in which he travels and of course he understand that the fabulous location and the ship from his book really exist. The train in this case symbolizes the track of our monotonous life. Immediately he decided to abandon the manager and all his concerts.

Thus ends the real ship among his crew. After agreeing to take it on the road at sea, they experienced a minor incident, after which the protagonist of the film is cast from the ship in a boat. After a long period of time, the main character has lost all hope of salvation. Then appears the wave runner - local legend that saves him. When he wakes up in the boat that rescued him, the pianist sees the girl from the story and falls in love with her.

After subsequent adventures, he loses all hope to be with her and returns to the music. It takes some time and accidentally he again meets the girl who saved him. This time they remain together. So the film shows a surprisingly beautiful for its time, the importance of looking for true love because it exists out there somewhere, and if you really decide to wait for it, it will come. Watch the movie!
