Konrad Steiner (Sigfrit Steiner) has worked all his life, never taking a single vacation. When his wife dies, the old gentleman cremates her and continues working, though he should have retired long ago. His son tries to get him to move in with him, far away from everything familiar to him. When he receives an eviction notice from his landlord, he fights back with the help of a sympathetic social worker, but is soon left with the option of an Old Age Home or the struggle to live independently on his few savings. However, he still has some fight left in him, and makes a surprising choice.
