Friendships unravel in a small French town in World War II. After an attack kills two people outside a restaurant, the head of the Gestapo orders those there that they must choose who will be executed if the guilty party is not found. Friends gathered to celebrate a birthday turn on each other, revealing a lack of loyalty and an abundance of cowardice.
