Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
When the leader of a fascist gang known as the Iron Guards discovers that he is dying of cancer, he goes to the cemetery to pay a grudging homage to his former arch-enemy, the late police inspector Moldovan. It turns out, as the fascist soon discovers, that Moldovan was not quite as "late" as everyone thought, and then the hunt for him begins through all the back alleys and seedy night life of the city. The gang leader would very much like to catch the inspector and ensure that the prefix "late" will be accurate this time. As a part of the action, Moldovan's son is kidnapped to bring him out of hiding - a ploy which the Iron Guards hope will work when everything else has failed.
