Not long after Martin Luther began the Protestant Reformation, monarches all over Europe began choosing religious allegiances to match their political preferences. Soon after that, the Thirty Years' War was fought between Catholics and Protestants. Since it was a religious war, it was particularly noted for the abominable atrocities practiced on both sides. In this allegorical and symbolic film, which begins and ends with a World War Two-type saturation bombing, the suffering of the peasants during that long and vicious war is elaborated on.
