Since the death of Melena his life long companion, Wiktor who presides over the Polish Embassy in Uruguay, feels restricted by the rigid regulations. Wiktor is involved in underhanded diplomatic dealings with the Russians, in the trading of arms and International organizations, but he no longer has faith in anything. He is all alone. He believes all his friends are untrustworthy, and that Helen had also been unfaithful to him. When he finally discovers that all of his suspicions are unfounded, he surrenders to his own emotions of truth and moral principles, feelings he believed to have lost, since leaving his town after Solidarnosc. Having taken off the veils of the powerful Ambassador, Wiktor once more leads the life of a simple man.
