While the town is gripped with violent demonstrations and subject to a general atmosphere of distrust, Wilfried does all he can to avoid trouble. He receive the support of a man from the side of the occupying German forces, called Meanbeard, but he is also a confidante for Lode, his fiercely anti-Nazi colleague, who is also the brother of his fiance, Yvette. Wilfred will have to fight to survive, while the nazi occupation and the extermination of Jews become more and more oppressive realities.
