In a small town still occupied by the Germans as the tide of the Second World War is turning toward the Allies, apprentice train-watcher Milos is oblivious to the worldwide conflagration. Instead, he is obsessed with having his first sexual experience. Despite the favors of train conductor Masa, Milos has no luck. His quest leads him to a female Resistance fighter who, in passing, recruits him to the cause. As Milos finally finds love, danger draws closer.
