A writer gets a fur hat. All could be well but he gets a fur hat of less value than his colleagues. And the wheel starts moving... There are endless schemes, plotting and intriguing to "restore justice". The main character of the film gradually becomes obsessed and goes headlong to his destruction, both moral and social. It is a bitter tale of petty means, poverty and humiliation, envy, struggle and hatred. It is not only a tale of the depravity of socialism, it is a tale of what a person can find when looking into his own soul, into its frightening depths.
