The time is World War II and Klari (Edit Frajt) is a young Jewish woman divorced from her husband, now in the Hungarian armed forces. She meets Jacques (Andre Dussolier), a French POW staying in a rather loosely-run hostel that allows the prisoners to come and go as they please. The two fall in love after initiating a casual relationship, although Jacques is a married man. Soon Klari is in danger because of her Jewish identity so Jacques hides her in a school run by French rabbis -- and he himself goes off to join the fighting. When the Nazis arrive and Germany takes over, Klari discards her cover as a cook but overcome by an inexplicable apathy, she joins those being sent to the concentration camps. Jacques, in the meantime, has come back to look for her -- with very little hope once he knows what has happened. This film won a Silver Medal in the 1981 Moscow Film Festival.
