In this Russian war movie, set at the end of WW II, an interpreter with the Russian army is assigned to make sure the Germans hiding out in a church surrender peacefully. He nears the building carrying a white flag. Inside the church, the SS men decide it is better to keep fighting and they shoot the interpreter. Suddenly the movie moves to the recent past where the interpreter has met and fallen in love with a field nurse. They get engaged and plan to marry after the war. Unfortunately, things don't happen as planned and tragedy ensues.
