Plot synopsis
1943. In Byelorussia, hundreds of villages are burned to the ground in reprisal against the partisans and as part of the plan to liquidate the Slavic population. An SS detachment, sent to carry out this mission in one village, receives last minute instructions to suspend the operation. Instead of exterminating the locals, the SS become their "pleasant" and obliging guests. Will Franz, a sensitive and somewhat naive young German soldier, have the chance to declare his feelings to pretty young Polina before a new order is received? How much time does he have left ? The young couple will soon be forced to choose between their mutual attraction and a sheer desire to survive.
