Berlin, summer of 1941, during the World War II. Five young Germans promise to meet again as soon the war ends… in Christmas: brothers Wilhelm and Friedhelm will go to the Russian front. Charlotte will serve as a nurse in a campaign hospital. Greta dreams of becoming a singer. Viktor, her Jewish boyfriend, works as a tailor with her father. But soon their naive wishes of peace and happiness will become a long and tragic nightmare.
