The characters are members of an anti-fascist combat group. Six of them are betrayed and apprehended. During the investigation, the police entangle one of them in a crafty piece of intrigue so that the other will imagine him to be an agent provocateur. Suspicion sneaks into the group. By suspicion and doubt the police try to split the six men who are untied by their common ideals and fate. But after an excruciating inner struggle, trust gains the upper hand: each of characters is sooner prepared to die than believe in unproven guilt of one of his comrades and betray them all.Written by

Motive of trust is a distinguishing feature of the film
The director Ducho Mundrov took part in the anti-fascist resistance - he was under death sentence in jail. Drawing from his experience he has made a deeply moving, poetic and humane picture. His film is one example of a wave of poetic films in Bulgarian cinema during 60-s. These films are dealing with the resistance theme, which began, in the late fifties and the early sixties. Here, as in the most of the films of this group, faith in the revolutionary ideals is associated with the moral qualities of the person.
A distinguishing feature of the films made during this period is motive of trust. Here, indeed, it is what drives the action onwards.
