Synopsis

It is June 1941 and a company of German soldiers is stationed near the Lithuanian border. While on leave, three soldiers—Wagner, Lick and Paulun—go off on a hunting trip. All is fine until one of them accidentally shoots their captain’s daughter. Out of fear, the three men decide to leave the body and tell no one of the accident. Tensions mount and the soldiers are pushed to the breaking point when accusations and troubled memories collide.

 

Based on the novella Comrades by Franz Fühmann.
