In 1945, Mischa, a Red Army officer, discovers a frightened German girl, Anna, huddled in a Berlin cellar. He gives her a safe escort home and wins her gratitude.

He remembers Anna and searches for her in the western sector, where he is observed by the Secret Police. He is instructed to report to the police chief, Kazanow, who reprimands him for leaving the eastern zone. While there, Mischa discovers that Anna is Kazanow's secretary.
