Ipu is best friends with Alex, one of the kids in the village, and they spend their time fishing and playing war games. Actually, Ipu is French and his real name is Theodore: he was left behind by the French army at the end of World War I, being found almost dead and with no memories of his former life by the priest Ioan (Keitel). Now it’s time for Theodore to save the priest’s life: when a German soldier is killed in the village and a German commander threatens that the most prominent ten members of the community will be sentenced to death if they don't turn in the killer, Ipu is asked to sacrifice himself for the sake of others.
