Synopsis

In 1934, while carrying on terrorist training activities under the leadership of Ante Pavelic and preparing to assassinate King Alexander I, members of the Usta¿e, an extreme Croatian nationalist group, sequester themselves in a castle in Hungary. Among them is Lazar Marko, a fiery anarchist fugitive, whose volatile presence provokes increasing mutual distrust. Informed that the Hungarian government, which has permitted the establishment of the training center, intends to extradite the terrorist fugitive, the partisans slay Marko, afterwards eulogizing him as a martyr.
