An ex-Partisan, and after the war a youth activist, goes into a village in Stajerska in order to buy up the harvest from the peasants, and to convince them to enter the collective farm. After illusory success and real failure, he fulfills his party mission. The collective farm is founded, but her foundation was not the result of persuasion, but threats and blackmailing. Torn with this knowledge, and intimately unhappy because of love failure, in the moment of his social mission realization, he murders an innocent man.
