A decrepit old man lives a solitary life in a depopulated mountain area. One day he returns to his ramshackle house and finds he has been robbed.

Brought to the limits of physical and moral resistance, the old man faces human cruelty, pain and compassion. Eventually, he loses the last thing he is left with - his human dignity.
