The relative calm and complacency of the citizens of a depressed village is disturbed when a circus rolls into town, bearing the enormous carcass of a whale and a mysterious (and unseen) man titled "the Prince."
The plot is something of a mystery, and feels more like an allegory than a depiction of real events. Better, since Bela Tarr himself denies that his films are allegorical or symbolic, it feels like a depiction of events that do not take place in this world but in a parallel universe that is similar enough to this world as to resonate and to suggest themes of universal import about the human condition.
