Life of a railroad employee, although fitted into standard norms - job
and family - suddenly changes, starts to decay. He leaves his home
and, in another town, surrounded with jolly friends, meets another woman.
His hopes that this new life will pass without worries, have evaporated.
So, the hero of this common life story, worried and upset,
tries to, according to given morale norms, rescue the settled order
of things: to preserve his family and to prepare his sons well for
life. But, the violation he comitted, hunger for changes, gets him
in hopeless situation. Insane with despair, through murder, he chooses
suffering as the only pure thing in human life.
