Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
Cafe patrons are forced to decide what side to fight on when the Nazis invade Yugoslavia in World War II. When the Nazi flag is raised in town, they go underground to discuss their political allegiances. A core of partisans holds out against the Germans as the enemy tracks them down. When a Czech acrobat comes to town, both sides put off the fighting long enough to witness his high wire act. His symbolic walk temporarily unites people in the middle of the war in this satirical World war II saga. The title refers to the mode of transportation used by both sides of the conflict.
