Carinthia 1948 - 1960. Horst Schellander has been living in the spirit of a victor since the end of the war (and of the Greater German Reich). As a Tito partisan he risked his neck and now waits for his efforts to be rewarded. In the ranks of the KPÖ he fights for the cause of the Slovenes and counts on a "unification" with the Slovenian brothers in Yugoslavia. His hopes were finally dashed by Tito's break with Moscow. While Schellander gets into material difficulties and has to hire himself out as a road worker, he sees how his neighbors, Austrians and Slovenes, concentrate on muddling along in their narrow everyday lives. The tentative onset of tourism, which promises the village some prosperity, "corrupts" the ideals in which Schellander believed. Ideological convictions have long since become mixed up with tangible economic interests. Schellander cannot stand reality ...

"There must be a time when it is enough with the killing. Always one against the other, and vice versa, and always onward."
