Her husband dies after a heart attack, Sever leaves the parental home and works as a worker at the CFR depot in the city and Sabina dies as a victim of a calf.

Trivia

Pe platouri
„Lugojul a devenit, pentru câteva săptămâni, platou de filmare. La cadru: Draga Olteanu­-Matei în rolul Păunei Varlam, eroina viitorului film „Cine râde la urmă”care prilejuiește reconstituirea, pentru prima dată într-un film românesc, a mediului insolit oferit de lumea tăbăcarilor și cojocarilor bănățeni din România anilor 1945-1948.” (Dumitru Fernoagă, Cinema nr. 6, iunie 1975)
