Summary
A young man's search for his patrimony turns sour when the scheming wife of his landlord enlists him in a plan to murder her husband for his money. Despite his misgivings and overwhelmed by the sexual frenzy she has induced, he follows through with the plan, only to be betrayed. Unflinching, tough, and dramatic, the Search was most certainly intended to be a harsh criticism of post-revolution morality. On its most elemental level, however, it is a powerful story of lust, greed and murder
