The story of the Partisans who braved death to undermine Nazi domination in World War II is explored in this wartime drama. Dr. Vladimir Kantet (Slavko Cerjak) is a key resistance fighter but is above suspicion from a Nazi point of view because his high-ranking position would presuppose political clearance. Divisions within Yugoslav society are shown as the occupying German army hobnobs with an elite citizenry, yet has no compunction about torturing or beating anyone they see as "subversive" or simply a nuisance. But sooner or later the Nazis must start wondering how certain information could have been passed on if the informer was not a high-placed bureaucrat.
