After the end of the First World War, Gabriel Dan is released from a POW camp in Russia and begins making his way home to Austria.
He comes to an industrial town in Poland, and checks in the ramshackle Hotel Savoy while awaiting financial aid from his family.
Here he meets a kaleidoscope of characters, a microcosm of society in which rich and poor, itinerants, dissidents and malcontents live lives of hope, expectancy and despair in an atmosphere pregnant with revolutionary fervour.
