Coming to the Village he is surprised to find out that no one expects him. He tries to assert his rights but runs into impregnable blank wall of hostile world. Penetration into the Castle becomes the purpose of his life. For the sake of this purpose he betrays the woman he loves, experiences humilations, deceives and loses himself...
