This film, set in France at the time of the Second World War, is neither a love story, nor a war action/adventure story. An injured and toothsome young man is found in the woods by a 14-year-old French girl, who is entranced by him. He claims to be an Englishman, there to organize resistance to the Nazis, and she hides him in her family's attic. She falls in love with him, and at his prompting, seeks out the local resistance to put him in contact with them. Unfortunately, he's been lying to her all along. He's a Frenchman who fought at the Eastern Front with the Germans. Because of her help, he is able to single-handedly exterminate the entire local resistance operation.
