In a post-apocalyptic society where food is scarce and used as currency, the owner of an apartment building (which includes a delicatessen on the ground floor) is in need of a new maintenance man because the prior one has “mysteriously” disappeared. A former clown applies for the job. The owner/butcher's intent is to have him work for as little as possible, and then serve him to odd tenants for payment in grain. The clown and the butcher's daughter fall in love, so she tries to foil her father's plans by contacting the “troglodytes,” a grain-eating subculture who live entirely underground.
