It is New Year's Eve. A party of hunters comes upon a body, buried in the snow and miraculously preserved by the cold. By his uniform, he appears to be a dead WWII partisan fighter killed during the civil war and the hunting party must now decide what to do with the body. When they disinter it, blood begins to flow from the wounds in the partisan's body and they carry it back to the lodge where the inquest begins.
