Synopsis

Young man walking down the street notices three running people in striped clothes, who disappear around the corner. The man intends to buy himself a coat. The clothes store manager tries to persuade him to buy a swimsuit instead, because the manufacturers are planning ahead, and therefore now in winter they have only summer goods. Despite the man's objections he forces him to buy tennis outfit. In a fish shop the shop assistant has an unsolvable problem. Customers want only parts of fish, but she refuses to chop it, because she does not know how to set its price. A young customer who just came decided to buy the whole five-kilogram fish, and sells the parts to the customers himself. He is left only with the fish head. At a pharmacy the chemist dispenses to a young man the castor oil in a bottle and refuses to give him gelatine capsules, because it was not specified in the prescription. The young man is desperate. Soon afterwards come young male nurses, who subsequently take all shop assistants to an ambulance. They were patients who escaped from a psychiatric hospital.
