In this, arguably the finest feature film from the great Croatian film director Branko Bauer (1921-2002), a World War II resistance fighter who escapes a train en route to the Jasenovac concentration camp returns to Zagreb in an attempt to find his son Zoran (Zlatko Lukman), and then join the partisans in the Croatian hinterland. However, he discovers that Zoran is in an Ustaša boarding school and has been brought up to hate partisans and communists. The hero manages to escape the city with his son, but throughout their journey he is forced to lie to his son about his allegiances.
