Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
This military satire finds a young man aspiring to become a parachute jumper in the German Army. When a medical check-up reveals a lung disorder, the man is hospitalized in a sanatorium. He engages in an affair with the pretty young wife of an army official in the hope that she can convince her husband the young man is fit for military service. The husband discovers the two together but forgives them both for the affair. The young man is cleared to join the army, but his experiences convince him he would rather be a lover of women than a fighter of men.
