The Jew from Brooklyn wanted nothing more than to go home to his wife. The Hollywood director regretted the patriotic gesture that would lead him into the hell of war. The German officer decided to harden his heart till the killing was over. All are drawn inevitably to each other as the fighting reaches its climax. All three must face what it really means to give one's life for one's country, and to take lives in return. Only one will survive.
