Plot

During a war between Austria and Prussia, three soldiers desert their units after being defeated by the Prussian army and find the shelter in a lonely farmhouse. They do not share the pacifist belief of the farmer, but they also do not want to fight anymore. After the farm house is attacked by plundering Prussian hussars, the three soldiers decide to fight and eventually die, not for glory or money or their empress, but for innocent people.
