Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
This grim and symbolic war story finds a poor man and his calf left to wander the countryside after his master is killed by the invading Nazis. He hides in an outhouse before managing to escape with his animal and his life. Gypsies steal the calf, but the man gets him back when the Nazis shoot the thieves. He is helped by a woman and her widowed daughter when they provide shelter for the homeless wanderers. Love blossoms between the man and the woman's daughter as their lives are turned upside down and the war rages on around them.
