Various people meet, each with his own problems, and injustices occur.

"The intersecting stories of these different people reveal a series of minor negligences, which are caused primarily by the egoism and isolation of everyone. It isn't the justice of man that will punish the 'guilty ones', but a much more merciless logic" (M. Schapira).
