Synopsis

(1) In World War II, Milos, a Yugoslav partisan, is part of a crowd of refugees attempting to escape by train from the approaching Germans. Among the waiting throng is a man without identification papers who is suspected of being a fifth columnist. As the near-hysterical mob goads three soldiers into arresting the man, Milos feebly tries to intervene. But his efforts are in vain, and the man is shot to death. A few moments later, the dead man's wife appears and establishes her husband's innocence. (2) Following a resistance raid, Milos is chased by Nazis into a swamp where he encounters another man, an admitted coward, who is also in hiding. Knowing that the Germans are looking for only one fugitive, the man sacrifices himself to his pursuers and is burned to death in a small shack, thereby permitting Milos to escape to freedom. (3) As the war nears its end, Milos, now an officer in the Yugoslav Army, is forced to pass the death sentence on those of his countrymen found guilty of collaboration. Though peace is at hand, he orders the execution of a young woman to whom obviously he is attracted.
