Reinicke organizes a dance for soldiers and local girls to attract good publicity. Anton Schen, a young Austrian, takes a shine to Marie Weston, whose widowed father, a lawyer who fought in World War I, has had his car requisitioned by the occupiers and does not want Marie to attend the dance. She nevertheless goes behind his back and dances with Anton but, on the way home, fights off his advances and accuses him of rape. He is court-martialled and claims that Marie was willing but Richter finds him guilty and he is shot. Next morning Richter orders Reinicke to give Mr. Weston his car back.
