Pavle (Bekim Fehmiu) is an honest man, and he has a crusade: he is responding to Tito's Call-to-Order letter which urges that people root out corruption. Pavle knows about some corruption in his own factory; the higher...展开-ups have their own private beaches and resorts in payment for some shady deals they have done. He does not meet with a very warm response when he tries to make these abuses known. Pavle Pavlovic the film, also met with a cool response from Yugoslav officialdom; even though it was inspired by Tito's own crusade, it made the system of "self-rule" look bad. Because of this, the film was barred from competing in the 1975 Yugoslav Film Festival, though it was allowed to be shown.
Pavle Pavlovic, metalworker, speaks freely about the problems of his factory in a TV-show. The management gives him an apartment and he takes back his statement in return. But, he loses friendship and trust of his colleagues. He starts from the beginning: in another company, through work and efforts he gains friends again, but involved in series of complications in which he confronts even the criminal illegal workers transfer abroad, he loses his life in the end.
