May 1945, the Wehrmacht forces are weary from retreat, while the Allies close in. An Austrian captain attempts to guide the remains of his company behind the Russian lines to surrender to the Americans. They take under their wing a developmentally disabled boy. As the loyalty of his men is brought to the test, the captain's bond with the boy evokes a dark secret from his past.
