Also known as Suicide Squadron, the film tells the story of a Polish musician (Stefan) who meets an American journalist (Carole) as the Nazis are marching into Poland.  Forced to flee, they fall in love during their flight and get married after escaping Poland.  And while his marriage to Carole and the life of a musician makes Stefan very happy, he can't forget his commitment to Poland and ends up fighting the Germans in spite of Carole's fears and concerns.  The film is especially noteworthy for its introduction of one of the most classical pieces of the period:  The Warsaw Concerto.
