Plot summary

The film centres around a dugout, formed from a basement, in no man's land between the trenches and front lines during the First World War.

A ruined house is found by a soldier stranded between the lines who discovers an injured man trapped beneath some woodwork in the basement. The man has no uniform and is rescued by two men who we finally realise are from different sides. The injured man cannot speak and is helped by the other two. They try to leave and return to their own lines but are fired upone by both sides and so return to the shelter of the basement.

Eventually more soldiers find the safe haven in between all the firing and death with the credits listing the characters as The Englishman, The Frenchman, The Russian Jew, The Vaudevillian and The German. The storyline follows the arguments and discussions and ends with them marching out together with a final commentary declaring the sentiment of peace "Marching forward. Defying their common enemy - WAR."
