Life's small maelstroms invade a family and those in their apartment building in this off-color comedy by Gyorgy Szomjas. After a young and lugubrious husband (Janos Ban) becomes exasperated with his boss, he decides to quit work and look for something more interesting. He finds it in a gorgeous new neighbor (Renata Szatler) who makes him forget his married state. The unemployed husband starts up his own service as a wall driller for people who need to hang up heavy pictures and other objects. It is while working in that capacity that he gets to know his lovely neighbor in the biblical sense of the term. Meanwhile, prostitution is springing up as a means for new mothers home on leave to add to the family coffers. In general, the architecturally dull housing block has some pretty wild characters living behind its cement block walls.
