The daughter of a wealthy French vintner, Justine (Louise Glaum) is promised in marriage to German aristocrat Kurt Von Klassner (Sam De Grasse), even though her heart belongs to Bertrand Duroc (Edward Coxen), the humble overseer of her father's estate. His pride wounded, Von Klassner murders Duroc and shifts the blame to marauding poachers. With no other recourse left to her, Justine marries Von Klassner, though she insists upon raising their child in French customs rather than the German manner. When Von Klassner renounces his French citizenship at the outbreak of WWI, Justine spitefully tells her son that his father was the late Bertrand. Later on, the Germans march into Justine's village, raping and pillaging every foot of the way. Justine simultaneously strikes a blow for French sovereignty and wreaks vengeance upon her husband when her son turns Von Klassner over to the French authorities, accusing the man of being a spy. In true Postman Rings Twice fashion, Von Klassner is executed not for the crime he did commit, but for the one he didn't.
