This is the graduation film of director Werner Masten, a commendable effort at depicting the world of one holocaust survivor, Baranski (Jan Groth). The unassuming man lives a solitary life in an apartment building where he is not necessarily treated with much respect by the people around him. Then one day he runs into the man who abused him during his imprisonment in a concentration camp, a man he had always thought had died in the war. Aside from the effect that this has on him, Baranski tries to cultivate the friendship of a young boy who lives in his apartment building. All told, his post-war life has not been easy.
