At the height of the Rákosi era, an ordinary dike keeper, József Pelikán, has been caught for illegally slaughtering his pig. Instead of doing hard time for his "heinous" crime, Pelikán is elevated into an important position, generally reserved for the communist elite. His new benefactor, the mysterious Comrade Virág, is reluctant to reveal the real reason behind Pelikán's preferential treatment.
