Bulgarian officials make a party out of the death watch for four condemned communist prisoners. The prosecutor orders his girlfriend to play his favorite tango at the hour of their execution. While pompous officials revel in their position and power, friends of the captured men try to liberate them before the sentence can be carried out. The communists try to garner enough local support to save the prisoners while waiting for the inevitable takeover in an effort to get rid of the existing government.
