In the tense days leading up to the Allied bombing of Dresden, a young nurse weighs her loyalty to the motherland against her deepest desires after discovering an injured British pilot in a hospital cellar. Anna (Felicitas Woll) is a compassionate nurse working in a German hospital, and Robert (John Light) is a British pilot who has become trapped behind enemy lines. When Anna discovers Robert hiding out beneath the hospital, her first instinct is to dress his wounds. But Robert is the enemy, and despite her growing attraction to him she realizes that the penalties for aiding an enemy combatant is severe. Now, as Anna schemes to conceal Robert's true identity and Robert does his best just to survive, the city of Dresden is suddenly consumed by the chaos of war.
