A local pub in a small town. It’s Monday and the bar is closed, the chairs are turned upside down on the tables. The pub is empty except for six amateur actors sitting in a corner. They’ve met to rehearse “The Insect Play” by the Čapek brothers. On a raised platform across the room we see a stage, set for Act II of the play. As the rehearsal progresses, the characters of the play are born and die without any regard to time. The actors slowly become one with them and some of them undergo frightening transformations…

A book by a former SS officer detailing his time and deeds in Slovakia falls into the hands of the interpreter, Ali Ungár. He realises that the SS officer is responsible for the death of his parents. He travels to Vienna but, in place of the killer, he finds only his son, Georg, a former teacher who has distanced himself from his father’s past throughout his life.
