Two soldiers who helped liberate a town from the enemy return home at the end of World War II to find their own village has been destroyed. The only living soul left is a crazy German who wanders aimlessly around the rubble. The soldiers are driven insane due to their inability to halt their violent behavior in peacetime. They struggle with the hero worship of the town they liberated as the madness of war continues after the guns have stopped shooting. The two argue over a woman before taking their weaponed frustrations out on the harmless German half-wit and each other in the tragic aftermath of war, death and destruction.
