The death of a tax-collector, Dénes Witman, leaves his close relatives unmoved. Mrs Witman, his selfvsh widow, cares little about her adolescent sons. With the father's death, the family is left without rules. The Witman boys have to create their own. They are desperately searching for a meaning in their lives. When the boys arrive at an old brothel occupied by a young woman, they know they have found what they were looking for. At first, she is kind to them but rapidly she is not satisfied with her visitors and will only let them in if they bring her gifts. The boys find jewelery in a glass cabinet in their mother's bedroom. They are prepared to do anything in order to get the jewels, even if it means killing their mother.
