A farmer's wife in Brandenburg is having strange dreams in which a Soviet prisoner-of-war assumes the face of her son. When her son suddenly turns up, she then has to stop a crime he had been helping plan against Soviet prisoners, tying him up and giving him up to the advancing Soviet army so that he survives the war.
