Drama about love, passion, death and punishment. The hero of the story is Josef Douša, a railway guard who returns from the First World War hoping to forget all the horrors of his recent experiences in his lone-standing guard house by his beautiful young wife’s side. One day he saves the life of a young man who is about to jump under a train. However, the man falls in love with Douša’s wife, who reciprocates his passion. Douša is hit by a bout of deafness and when his hearing returns he does not admit it to anyone – not even his wife. For that is the only way he can learn the truth about his wife’s infidelity…
