Abstract

This film explores how silence operated as a form of resistance in occupied France during World War II. An uncle and niece must host a German officer in their home. Werner von Ebrennac speaks of his love for France, its peoples, and its culture only to be greeted with silence. Over the months, von Ebrennac questions Germany's plans for war.
