Three young sisters enjoy their romp in the woods in this symbolic drama. They prepare for a birthday party for the oldest girl at their grandmother's house. The trio perceives the world outside to be a "garden of desire," but their idyllic splendor is soon disturbed by the initial rumblings of the impending war. The birthday girl has premonitions of disaster, and their beloved father is soon arrested and is never seen again. After a bomb supposedly obliterates everything, two blond children are seen skipping through a cemetery.
