When a construction worker falls to his death due to a deliberate laxness in safety regulations, the construction foreman's son-in-law attempts to get some compensation from the construction company for the man's widow. Instead, he runs into obstruction after obstruction. This impassioned indictment of the fraternity of greed won the Silver Bear Award (second prize) at the 1978 Berlin Film Festival. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
