The story begins in the summer of 1980 in a suburb of Budapest, in the confused atmosphere of the decomposing partystate. A young married couple and a farmer worker’s militia commander live next door to each other in one of the streets. There has been a war going on between them for a quite a long time over certain parts of the land. There is a secret base, a huge arsenal hidden under the garden of the militiaman where a handful of intrepid militiamen are getting ready for the restoration and the destruction of democracy. They drill in complete secrecy down in the labyrinth of the cellars. In the meantime another war breaks out between the husband and the wife. Because of a misunderstanding right at the beginning of our story a jealous argument unfolds between them which soon turns into a real battle.
