In this political drama, the manager of a Montenegran factory gets in the way of the schemes of a dishonest bunch of power brokers who get him arrested on phony charges of corruption. No one has the courage to come to his defense except for one factory supervisor, who consequently suffers for his good deed by being fired after several demotions. Eventually the government steps in and straighten things out, but the need for everyone to save face prompts the factory boss to pretend that the manager's absence was simply due to his need to be away on business. However, this dishonesty won't wash with the boss' defender, and he continues to suffer reprisals for his refusal to play the game even minimally.
