Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
A young doctor and his friend visit the friend's cousin in a rural area in this foreboding tragedy. Their host is a doctor who had been involved in the Stalin trials of the early 1950s. They arrive to find the doctor has shot a poacher, supposedly the victim of a long running feud between the two. The elder doctor's only passions seem to be hunting, drinking and talking about the good old days of Stalin's era. The host soon begin to suspect his wife has designs on their young medical guest. He gives the visitors a ride to the train station but they miss the ride. Returning to pick up the visitors, the man tells his wife that his car ran out of gas. The two agree to stay for another day and go hunting. The older doctor shoots the younger one in an "accident", and the man's wife prepares to leave him.
