One day in the Autumn of 1950, during the forced collectivization, the farmers lead their cattle into the common stables of the new cooperative. The cooperative's chairman, Picin, publicly calls out the farmers' names. Only one among the farmers - rich Konvalinka - opposes the collectivization in a horrific way: shooting all his cattle and himself committing suicide. The village witnesses the return of Konvalinka's daughter, nicknamed "Miss", a former nun, whose cloister was closed by the new regime. She is running the remaining property with the help of the village fool, Ambroz.
