Germany, November 1944, in a foresterâ€™s lodge in the woods ... Little Ludwig tells on his big brother Alfred, who then gets beaten by his father. During the night, Alfred canâ€™t sleep because of the pain. This makes him a witness to two pilots parachuting from a crashing plane into the woods nearby. The next morning, a troupe of the Home Guard takes the father with them on the hunt for the Americans. Alfred spots the opportunity to win back his fatherâ€™s affection: he wants to find the Americansâ€™ valuable parachutes before the Nazi police force seizes them. But his little brother Ludwig insists on getting in his wayâ€¦.
