Pre-revolutionary Russia. A butcher family lives in a small town. The butcher is a despotic, dumb and ferocious man. He drives his wife to grave, turns his son into a despicable person.

At the cemetery, while burying his wife, the butcher notices a pretty girl, obedient and shy. The butcher makes her marry him, knowing that she is his son’s fiancée. His son leaves the family, becomes a drunkard and a vagabond. But the butcher does not care about his son, nothing can change his beastly nature.
