The hectic lifestyle in polluted cities makes people ill. Neuroses are a common occurrence. Overpopulation, pollution, and noise are the enemy no. 1. This film shows what can happen to a man irritated by a sound while he is trying to quietly read his newspaper. A peaceful, ordinary man can turn dangerous when exposed to constant attacks on his ears. He is ready to wreak havoc. But maybe all that is just a fairy tale, as each one of carries everything that has accumulated within us during our brief life spans.
