Synopsis

Professor Herbert Ackerman is distracted by a phone call of his friend Allan, who begs him to come. The Professor is worried by Allan's words. On the phone, Allan speaks of a danger caused by a wind, which is trying to get into his house. The Professor refuses to come as he and his wife are expecting some guests for dinner. During the dinner Allan repeats his call several times with growing anxiety and fear. In the last call, he tells Herbert that the wind will get him like it got thousands and thousands of others before him and will keep doing so. The Professor finally decides to visit his friend. It is too late though - Herbert suddenly hears Allan's voice in his own house. The voice says that Allan is no longer a human being. The shocked Professor picks up a phone and calls his friend Smith. He tells him that he is in danger caused by an approaching wind, which will get him.
