Sorry, this film is no longer available.

The film commission for the Institute of Human Labour pointed out the importance of the right choice of one’s career for one’s happiness, thus indirectly popularizing the activities of career advice centres. A boy who wants to become a car mechanic tries out various professions in several stories, arriving at the conclusion that his ideal job is that of a ceramic painter. This focus was based on the requirements of the period employment policy whose task was to saturate the little popular and yet necessary professions.
