Autumn in a small provincial town, several years after the war. A local teacher has committed suicide in a rather bizarre fashion. While flocks of cranes fly over the town, his friends and acquaintances try to understand his reasons, revealing who they are in the process. The segmented narrative structure creates a mosaic in which the town itself becomes the main character.
