Set in a small southern Hungarian village, this drama chronicles the struggles of a nearly impoverished young couple to stay ahead of the Dwarf, the ugly, strange bureaucrat in charge of the town's electricity. There is not a lot of work in the village and what there is the gypsies, who will work for food, quickly steal. The couple is in desperate need of cash as the wife is pregnant with their second child and the husband cannot find a job. Eventually he learns of a man who is trying to fix up an old truck. Hoping that he can get a job driving the truck, he helps out. Along the way, the husband commits a small crime. This lands him in trouble and brings nothing but tragedy into his already difficult life.
