A woman seeks revenge when her husband is shot by Nazis for stealing a bag of cement in this grim war drama. Two German soldiers confiscate her horse and cart, and the woman goes along for the ride and tells the duo she will kill them. The older soldier is dying from war wounds while the second is a young Austrian who only wants to go home. She furtively drops a compass, weapons, and other items from the wagon until she is caught and kicked off the cart, but stubbornly, she follows the wagon trail and finds the wounded soldier dead and the young recruit asleep. She stops before killing the young man when he shows her pictures of his family back home. When the two embrace, they are distracted long enough for partisans to rape the woman and kill the soldier. Two versions exist, one 75 minutes, the other 115 minutes long.
