Twelve Frenchmen are condemned to die in a German prison camp during WW II. Cremer plays the leader of the resistance fighters who go in to save their countrymen. Their mission is a success, but they discover that an extra man, Piccoli, has been rescued as well. They cannot decide if he is

an innocent party or a Nazi spy. When he's discovered wearing German boots and carrying no identification, some decisions must be made. Brialy, a more outspoken member of the group, leads the others in demanding Piccoli's execution. They take the stranger along on a raid of a tax bureau, where he

risks his life in the fray to save a young child who accidentally gets in the line of fire. Cremer is unmoved, however, and orders Blain, a faithful follower, to execute Piccoli by the river. The two go, and Piccoli finally opens up. He tells how he deserted the army because of his pacifistic

beliefs, and Blain allows him to get away. But that night Piccoli returns to warn the group that they are surrounded by the Nazis. Cremer leaves to warn other resistance fighters, but many of the group, including Piccoli, are eventually captured by German forces. They are sentenced to be hanged,

but Piccoli manages to escape as the others are killed.
