The story follows a young student, who is orphaned as she grows to adulthood in the shadow of the 1956 Hungarian uprising. Coming from the communist intelligentsia, she sees her friends and family react differently. Her lover, a married factory manager, supports the patriots and later assists fellow workers in staging a strike. Meanwhile, her sister and others express anger at being forced from their homes during the revolution and continue to express a hatred for the rebels afterwards. But in the end, they realize that for all people, real life is not possible after the revolt and its brutal suppression by the Soviets and their collaborators.
