In this drama set in the south of France during World War II, the realities of war lose out to a melodramatic rendering of the fortunes of Lise, a gorgeous German Jewess (Barbara Rudnik). Lise escapes certain death in Nazi Germany by making her way to the south of France, only to be threatened once again when the Nazis occupy the area in 1942. Her manager sets her up in a small town where her accent, clothes and mannerisms cause the townspeople to suspect she's a German spy. If only she were aware enough not to leave little clues indicating who she is, and if she hadn't had that affair with a teen-ager, and if she would not say no to the wrong lover, maybe her future would look a little less grim.
