The theatre director I.P. Kolobkov is accused of staging a protest performance in a children's theater. Major Zaytsev tries to detain Kolobkov during the performance. The major's son is in the audience, therefore, in order to go on stage and catch Kolobok, he and other police officers are forced to put on bunny masks. Kolobok makes the police sing and dance until his girlfriend Lisa appears on the stage, and turns out to be the initiator of the allegations.
