Men probeert in het fictieve Tsjevengoer de eerste jaren na de Russische revolutie het ware communisme te installeren. De bezittende klasse en de tegenstanders worden geliquideerd of weggestuurd, enkele mensen maken er de dienst uit, de nieuwe heersende klasse. Ze schaffen het werk af, want dat lijkt hun niet communistisch. Wat daarvoor in de plaats komt is de zaterdagse vrijwilligersdienst. De overblijvers hebben er geen idee van wat socialisme is. Ze halen andere proletariërs naar de verlaten stad om die wat te bevolken. De stad wordt uiteindelijk aangevallen.
Het boek is lang verboden geweest in de Sovjet Unie, omdat het een aanklacht tegen het communisme is, maar werd in de jaren tachtig toch uitgegeven. Platonov mocht vanaf de jaren dertig haast niets meer publiceren. ( )
