Ivan Alekseevich, a high-ranking official, dies and finds himself in the house of his childhood, in the atmosphere where he began his life and meets there a strange character resembling an angel. Together they try to look at the life of the protagonist from a different angle and evaluate his actions. Any judgments that do not coincide with our ideas and beliefs, no matter who these judgments come from what we call delirium, therefore nothing will force a person to change their principles, even the strangest signs coming from outside.

The film Nonsense is an eternal attempt to raise the question, what is the meaning of life? A person constantly goes to some goals, often justifying his actions by the need to achieve these goals. Difficulties in achieving the goal, obstacles, unfavorable external circumstances - all must be overcome. The joy of achieving a goal is fleeting, because a person already sees the next goal and again begins to overcome obstacles, endure hardships and achieve. Living in a paradigm of life that is a consistent set of achieved goals, a person deprives himself of the awareness that the main thing in life is not the result, but the process itself. And, before answering the question, what is the meaning of life, you need to answer yourself what was the meaning of today, which has just been lived.
