Krieger (Willy Ziegler) is a traveling salesmen, on the road hawking women's cosmetics to hair salons, beauty salons, and other retail outlets while trying to fight his own loneliness by cruising bars and dance halls. The bleakness of his existence is echoed in ugly industrial smoke stacks and the urban blight of the neighborhoods he enters with his beauty products in tow. This harsh environment seems all the worse due to the cinema verité technique employed through most of the film - which runs for an excessive three+ hours.
