Summary
The story of an aging doorman whose happiness crumbles when he is relieved of the duties and uniform which had for years been the foundation of his happiness and pride. More than the plight of a single doorman, however, it is a mourful dramatization of the frustration and anguish of the universal working class. -- Based on container summary
