The young man working as a motorcycle repairman is too busy with his inner life to get involved in the kind of social activism advocated by his friends. He likes his girlfriend, his motorbike and his dreams. When the police take over the shop for an afternoon to practice police maneuvers, a smart remark results in his being questioned and bullied by them. The repairman refuses to lodge a complaint, despite pressure from his friends. However, events begin to wake him up to the difficulties posed by his bland acceptance of the status quo.
