Yasha Toporkov (Russian: Яша Топорков) is a 1960 Soviet drama film directed by Yevgeny Karelov and produced by Mosfilm.


Yasha Toporkov is in love with a cheerful girl named Marisha. He is young, happy and satisfied with life. Recently, Marisha became his wife. Yasha is also happy with his work. Everyone knows Toporkov at the construction site: his team came out on top. And about that "left outfit", according to which the foreman wrote him extra money, Yasha had long forgotten. Nevertheless, it is precisely because of this that an accident occurs at the construction site, a welder dies and the site foreman Mirzoyan is removed from the leadership[1].
