the the man is shot. Suddenly the dead man's wife appears and proclaims his innocence. In a second vignette, Zivojinovic is chased by the Germans into a swamp after he takes part in a resistance raid. There he meets another man in hiding. Knowing the Nazis are looking for only one fugitive, the

man sacrifices himself so that Zivojinovic can escape. In the final episode, the war is ending and Zivojinovic is now an officer in the Yugoslav army. He must pass an execution order on citizens accused of collaborating with the enemy. One is a woman to whom he is attracted, but Zivojinovic

carries out the order anyway. Nominated by the Academy for Best Foreign Film, it lost to A MAN AND A WOMAN.
