Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This Dutch melodrama is grounded in the activities of the post-WW II black market. Specifically, the protagonists are involved in a risky butter-smuggling operation along the Belgian border. Hugo Metsers plays a young man who is conscience-stricken by the fact that his former Resistance buddies are now mixed up in criminal activities. Ultimately, Metsers has an irreparable falling out with his best friend, a personal tragedy that leads to wider-ranging ramifications.
