Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Murder and deception are the motifs that characterize this drama from director Jaroslav Balik. When Hordubal (Anatoli Kuznetsov) comes back to his farm in Czechoslovakia after a sojourn in America, he is in for a few unpleasant surprises. The money he has faithfully sent home has been siphoned off by a notary, and his wife is having an affair with another man. Hordubal looks around for some way to save face with the villagers and opts for promising his 13-year-old daughter to his wife's lover. Mayhem and murder are the result.
