The Worker is the last part of the trilogy, and differs somewhat from the rest. Rather then telling of yet another building site, the film centers on the abstract image of the Worker. The voice-over commentary describes the meaning of work in Soviet life – the role and significance of each individual. Melting an old tank at the smelting plant serves as a metaphor for peace that enables all workers to fully dedicate themselves to productive construction.
