In a town young men mysteriously disappear. The shadow regime is represented by the old men, who are the members of the secret lodge Goethe. Their old bodies have been physically preserving and renewing itself by feeding on the energy of kidnapped young victims. Inspector Pavel is on the track of the organization, but he is trapped by the beautiful Kristina, who is herself under the control of the lodge. Like other youngsters, Pavel is also exploited for the transmission of energy to Ahac, a member of the leadership of the organization. Meanwhile Kristina falls in love with Pavel and disturbances appear in his connection with Ahac. Pavel manages to escape, destroying at the same time the control center of the secret lodge. When he is recaptured, it turns out that the true leader of the organization is well known to Pavel.
