Synopsis: A town in Macedonia is under German occupation. The end of the war is very near. In these last days of occupation the inhabitants of the town release some Russian and Italian soldiers. The German commanding officer demands that the citizens deliver the liberated prisoners, blackmailing them by mining the town. But the love, which the commanding officer feels towards the high-school student named Elena, is an obstacle to his executing this crime. He demands the girl be a ransom for the town. Elena's father, who is a priest in the town, sacrificing both his daughter and himself, marries the German officer and his daughter. The partisans enter the town and they kill the - just married - couple exactly at the moment when for the first time on Elena's face one can notice that the German officer becomes her favorite.
