Herta von Stauffen, wife of a captain in the Wehrmacht, the armed forces of Nazi Germany during World War II, goes to Brittany, France, to spend Christmas with her husband. Since he is away on duty, Herta must lodge with a widow, who is secretly part of the French resistance. Bit by bit, Herta becomes smitten with the son of the widow, a French paratrooper, who has just been sent from London to guide a Royal Air Force raid. Herta has the opportunity to denounce him but does not. The two fall in love, but their romance is threatened by the arrival of the bombings.
