PlotAn educational comedy that promotes socialist construction, the film shows a series of altruistic actions performed in a single day by the policeman Ma Tianmin. Because Ma is a bachelor, his chief's wife, Yao Meizhen, volunteers to be his matchmaker. She arranges for Ma to go on a date on his day off wiah a postal worker, Liu Ping. On his way to meet Liu, Ma becomes involved in a series of accidents. As a result, Ma misses his first date with LIu... By showing how all members of the new socialist society possess a good heart, the film praises the sense of solidarity inspired by the Communist revolution and combines it with traditional virtues (such as matchmaking) in a spirit of mediation and goodwill.
