Giuda (Yves Beneyton) is a revolutionary of Maoist zeal who leads a march to China to promote sex to insure the movement will never die. Jean (Rosemary Dexter) has eyes for Giuda, but he encourages her to run off with an archaeologist. He convinces some nomads to kidnap another woman in the group, and his last friend elects to convert to Buddhism. Giuda arrives alone at the border of China and is turned away with the advise that a Maoist can practice at home. The disappointed man becomes a lonely beachcomber until Jean sees him one day from her window on an outbound airplane.
