One has committed treachery, another responds with "throwing down the gauntlet ". Reason - woman, weapon - liquor. They drink up to defeat. Defeated is the one who is "knocked out". Trusted seconds strictly observe the established rules. The choice of weapon dictates the further course of events. All the bacis actions take place in a closed-in accomodation. The discussion touches the themes of childhood, family, solitude - each switches sympathy from one duelist to the other.
