Plot synopsis
Screen version of a story by A. Chekhov. A burnt match found under the bed of Klyauzov, a hellbender and wencher, the rumor of whose murder ran through the town, becomes an evidence that leads Dyukovsky, the coroner assistant, who suspects the comers and goers, to a washhouse, where the dead drunk «victim» sleeps quietly. The abashed detectives withdraw.
