Starving men in a Nazi prison camp plan the murder of a prisoner who becomes a brutal pawn of the Germans. Although the man is one of their own, he is assigned the duty of guarding the others, and the prisoners plan his ultimate demise. One attempt fails, and another plan is chosen to carry out the death sentence. When the target of the killing is stripped of his power for his affair with a female officer, he is starved and thrown back in with the prisoners he once guarded. The hired killer becomes a Nazi collaborator, and the prisoners begin to feed the fallen man in hopes he will recover and kill their latest menace.
