He tries to sneak through to his own lines, but is forced to take refuge in a small hotel, where he is hidden by the establishment's chambermaid.

A great movie - very entertaining from start to finish - the video release available from Grapevine is lacking only in the fact that the musical accompaniment is below average. However, that does not diminish the fact that Pola truly was a star and her on screen magnetism shines in this World War I themed movie. A must for silent movie fans.
