A partisan unit is fighting a battle with the gendarmes. Velko stays behind to cover the group's withdrawal. He has a small pistol with a mother-of-pearl grip. At the cost of his life, Velko helps his comrades escape to safety. Among the survivors are the commander Zhelyo, his wife, his son Pavel... Ten years later, Pavel is back from the Moscow University completing his studies. He finds his parents divorced. Zhelyo has given up the prospecting expeditions for the sake of comfortable managerial job. The former commander estranges from his comrades and spends his time, drinking with the sculptor Markov and Lyudmila, the daughter of dispossessed industrialist. In the capacity as Member of Parliament, Zhelyo has decided that a monument to Velko should be raised on the site of his heroic death, instead of having the iron e jobs ore deposits in the area developed and thus provide jobs for the locals. When Petko criticizes him for this, Zhelyo demands his expulsion from the Communist Party... Written by Georgi Djulgerov <georgidjul1943@gmail.com>
