    Titles read: "FITNESS WINS IN RUSSIA!"

    Russia, Soviet Union.

    Brief shots of people going into a building with the hammer and sickle sign. Inside we see several shots of young women doing keep fit exercises, balancing on the parallel bars and stretching. A man (the instructor?) plays volleyball with the girls.

    We then see a girl in top and shorts posing with a ball for men and women in an art class. In another hall a long line of women practice ballet postures at the bar. Brief shots of children doing exercises, then undressing in a dormitory and getting into bed.

    Exterior shot of a dance hall with two cars parked outside. We don't get to see inside, unfortunately, but just see shadows of dancers on the window panes.
