Friends call Valiko Mizandari "Mimino", which means "falcon" in Georgian. Working as a helicopter pilot in his own village, Mimino delivers mail, fruit, sheep. But his greatest dream is to fly real, big aircraft. Finally his dream comes true. He is invited to work in the big international air company "Aeroflot", and he leaves for Moscow. Mimino meets all kinds of people in the capital, among them a driver working on inter-city freight runs, Khachian, who becomes his friend. In Moscow, Mimino also meets an old-time offender of his sister. Always amicable and open to people, Mimino does not feel at home in the big city. Nevertheless, he becomes a pilot of a supersonic jet liner, flying all over the world. But feeling homesick, he finally comes back to Georgia, to his family and friends.
