Three lawyers, friends during their years at university, each go their own way after graduation. The first, driven by ambition, becomes increasingly corrupt as he gets more authority. The second becomes a member of a fundamentalist Islamitic group because he notices that this safeguards his future. The third preferred loneliness. Yet all three fight for the same thing: authority.
