A single father, who was involved with the Hungarian Communists during the Second World War meets an old friend from the formerly illegal party, Zoltán Dániel, who is now a government official under the communist regime. Dániel falls in the river and Pelikán rescues him and invites him to his home. While the two reminisce about old times at Pelikán's home, the secret police suddenly appears. They received a "serious anonymous report" stating Pelikán committed the illegal act of slaughtering a pig for food. Dániel tries to save him by demonstrating to the thugs how the loyal Pelikán hid him during the persecution of Communists years before, but he unknowingly reveals the basement, where all the pork had been hidden.
