In a Serbian village on Christmas Day in 1943, the Chetniks accept two downed American pilots and give them hospitality. However, finding out that the Germans are looking for pilots, the Chetniks change attitude towards them, disarming and shutting them off, but the pilots were able to escape. Palming off the corpses of two other killed prisoners to the Germans, who have since captured the real pilots, the Chetniks make local people enraged, despite their captain's attempts to cover up this wrongdoing, done on a public holiday.

Although the director Djordje Kadijevic already got attention and is well-known and respected in Serbia, I just have to spoil his fun (there, I am a spoiler after all)! I can't really call myself a "movie freak", but I've just finished a two-weeks "video home show" and I realized that, after watching at least six Kadijevic's movies, I don't really have an opinion. In short, that means I don't like any of these movies. Slow, boring and easy to forget what are you actually watching! If you have some free time and you wanna spend it smart, don't try it with Djordje Kadijevic's movies - for sure!
