One morning the old janitor in a mountain hut finds a scared, young woman hiding in the kitchen. Moments later, a middle aged man – her lover – enters the hut, introduces himself as her uncle and starts asking about her. The old man decides to protect her and lies, saying he hadn’t seen anyone around. At the end that decision will cost him dearly.
