The Bavarian farmer Alois owns a gigantic ox. The feisty animal again and again causes anxiety among the soldiers of the American occupation forces. Eventually, Alois is sentenced to 30 days in prison for this "political offence" of his ox. The only problem is that no one is willing to take responsibility for the wild ox during these 30 days. Thus, the authorities come up with a ludicrous solution: "Prisoner Alois" is assigned to do field work at "livestock owner Alois". At the same time "livestock owner Alois" has to guard "prisoner Alois". Thus, the plan seems to work – but in the end the "two Aloises" present their bills.
