A married couple living on a solitary farm is caught up in the turmoil of war. The couple struggles to survive between and during the violent visits of the marauding armies at loose in the land. The Italians are followed successively by the White Guard, the Chetniks, the Home Guard and the Germans. At the same time, they are also visited by members of the Partisan Army. Although the couple is determined to remain neutral and not to take sides with anyone, they agree to shelter a wounded partisan. Not even the threats, extortion, killings and rape carried out by the various occupying armies which they are witness to can force them to confess that they support the partisans. Finally, the Germans succeed in tricking them into giving themselves away. Will the German soldiers be merciful?
