Hubschmid is a young soldier who returns from the Seven Years War in disgrace over allegations of financial misconduct. He is consoled by his fiancee, Koch, but spurns her efforts because of his code of honor, which precludes his continuing their engagement while he is in disgrace. Seeking

to boost his shattered ego, Koch declares that her family has ostracized her for loving him, and this sparks a confession of love from Hubschmid. Miraculously, Hubschmid's name is cleared by the army soon after. The film is based on the play "Minna von Barnhelm" by the 18th century German critic

Gotthold Lessing.
