Behind the frontline of World War II, deserters are rife. Struggling to survive, young German soldier private Willi Herold, is hunted by Nazi officers who are rounding up deserters for court martial.
Stumbling upon a Nazi captain’s abandoned uniform, he takes his chances impersonating an officer. Emboldened by the authority it suddenly grants him, the soldier quickly takes on the monstrous identity of the perpetrators he is trying to escape from.
