Former partisan and a youth activist after the war, leaves for a village in Styria to buy some crops from the local farmers and persuade them to join the cooperative society. After some apparent successes and true fiascos, he completes the Party’s mission. They establish a cooperative society, but it was not a result of general consensus, because its establishment has forced them into it. With this realization and his break up with a woman he was involved with, he gets very depressed and kills an innocent person.
