This film is set in Prague during the Nazi occupation. Mistrik, a student, hides a Jewish girl who escaped when her family was taken to the ghetto. Eventually, he falls in love with her. Problems arise when his mother becomes over-suspicious and when the death of an SS general leads to

increased Nazi harassment. The girl flees from her shelter, feeling she has become too great a burden, and is quickly shot down by an SS patrol. Director Weiss himself was forced to leave Czechoslovakia during the Nazi occupation of that country. He returned after WW II to become the leading Czech

filmmaker of his generation.
