This war drama tells a story of a police official Johann Mirtz, who is deported from a small village in Romania to a concentration camp. After some time, his Aryan origins are confirmed and Johann is obliged to serve as an SS soldier. He is arrested and tried as a war criminal after the war, but the charges are dropped later. He now wants to reunite with his wife and children. They should be in Germany, but the country is devastated and it is nearly impossible to find them. The film criticizes war and quick judgment and depicts difficult life decisions without moralizing them.
