A crowd of ruined peasants and workers roam the country and, in the end, sink to the "bottom".

In one such flophouse Mikhail Kostylev is ready to squeeze the very last penny from his unfortunate and disadvantaged guests. And there are further developments....
"Comrades" reveals an ironic humour in its conception and is one of Gorky's lighter tales.
