In Burgendorf, Bavaria, Mother Bernle has four sons. Franz is in the Army, Johann works at the forge, and Andreas tends the sheep. Then, there's Joseph. He's out riding a hay wagon with a pretty girl, when some of the hay falls off, landing on fearsome Major von Stomm. Joseph gets a slap from the major. The jovial postman brings a letter from America. Joseph has a job offer in the States. But getting there is so expensive. It's Mother Bernle's birthday and most of the town gathers for a dance. Mother gives Joseph the money she has secreted away. He leaves for the U.S. Then WWI begins. Franz and Johann are excited about their new uniforms. But America is still neutral. Joseph runs a German-American Delicatessen with his new wife, Annabelle. Reports of the first German battles with the Russians are good. So why does the postman carry a black-edged letter for Mother Bernle?
