Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
A group of Austrian army officers at a mountain hospital are isolated by a severe snowstorm at the end of World War I. With the Austrian monarchy clearly on the way out, the men argue over to whom they will pledge their loyalty. The group is not only made up of Austrians and Hungarians, but Czechs, Serbs, Poles, Italians and others. The officers who are used to order and patriotism are thrown into the uncertainty of the political changes in the wake of the war.
