Tagline: In a war-torn village, one couple makes the ultimate sacrifice to save another.

Plot: This dramatic story of a hero against his will is set in a small Czech town occupied by German forces during the last years of the Second World War.

Josef and Marie Cizek are a childless couple. She yearns for a baby, but unfortunately her husband is sterile. By chance one day they come across a young Jewish man named David, and they offer him refuge in their home. From that moment they begin a dramatic fight for survival.

To divert the attention of the German authorities and thereby protect the whole street from the danger of execution, the couple becomes more and more entangled with the representatives of power and arbitrary rule. To make matters worse, Czech-German Horst Prohaska, a Nazi collaborator, often comes to see Marie, and his frequent visits increase the danger of David being discovered. During one tragicomic scene, Marie sternly refuses the repeated advances of this unsavory parasite, and Prohaska decides to take revenge on the Cizeks. He plans to move a Nazi official, Albrecht Kepke, into the room the Cizeks had planned for their own child.

To prevent this from happening, Cizek persuades his wife to become pregnant by their hidden fugitive. In this rather paradoxical way, David repays his debt to those who have saved his life.

The story culminates in May 1945
