Boris Malinovsky reached his goals. Stubborn character, liberal and proud, he can’t help but showing his success with arrogance. For a time, his wife Beatrice, Minister at the Federal Government, is stuck in bed, victim of a mysterious depression. In order to escape, Boris cumulates the love affairs with his colleague Helga, and with his young maid, Klara. The sudden appearance of a stranger forces Boris to reconsider his life, his gains and certainty.
