To help out Zegarac, a 17-year-old Jew, Tatic arranges a marriage for her and his son, Dvornik. Since the boy has been raised a Catholic, this marriage of convenience will protect Zegarac from the Nazis. Dvornik rebels at first and is ostracized by his friends and former girl friend.

Gradually he comes to know and trust his new wife and soon falls deeply in love with her. However his Catholicism is not enough to save her, and on an outing, Nazis arrest her. He follows her to a Nazi concentration camp where she is forced to work as a prostitute. The camp itself is run by a

former friend of Dvornik. He manages to break in and tries to help her escape but she is too weak. Unable to help her climb the barbed wire fence, Dvornik takes Zegarac's hand and the two die together as the electric current is turned on. The film was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film in

1960, but lost to THE VIRGIN SPRING.
