The year is 1945 and the war is over. The soldiers are returning home to the village, yet Jože Malek is the last one to arrive. His wife Mimika, and children Tinček and Olga know nothing but that he deserted the German Army and joined the Soviet Red Army. Life in the village gets moving again. The family is happy. Dad even changes his daughter’s name Olga into Volga - in remembrance of the Russians. And then black clouds start gathering over the land. All of sudden it’s no good if you were Stalin’s soldier. Malek is suspected of being a member of the Cominform. When examined, he does get himself out of scrapes by pretending to be a fool, but his cousin Vanč is imprisoned for giving him information. He is also expropriated as an agrarian proprietor as collective agricultural co-operatives are going to be set up. The dreams about the socialist kulak were nothing but dreams, anyway.
