Imre Kalán, the district doctor lives in a small village surrounded by mountains. One day he is visited by two young relatives of his and their friend, a doctor at the beginning of his carreer. The name of the doctor is András Király, and he happens to be the great love of Kalán's young wife from her unmarried years. The ortodox Stalinist Kalán's entire life is filled with his great passion, hunting. The suffocating, narrow lives of the prominent people is the area are slowly revealed to András. He sees that Mari does not love her husband. He tries to court her, but she refuses him. Yet the jealous and aggressive Kalán does not care about this. During a hunting organised to the honour of his guests he shoots András to death and disguises his deed as an accident. (Source: Hungarian Film Institute)
