On a hot summer afternoon in a city courtyard, a young man amuses himself by aiming air guns at random targets. A dramaturgical nerve hits a boy, bringing a helpless sparrow as a target… The man hits gradually, indifferently and skillfully; the kid helps him showing no less viciousness. The film examines the roots and manifestations of Evil, which will become the director’s permanent concern.
