Palestine, 1947/48:  The British prepare to withdraw and end their mandate, at which time, the Jews will proclaim an independent state. For the British, their problems governing the multinational territory will end; but for the Jews, their problems are about to come to a head. Israel will be surrounded by hostile Arab nations intent on smothering the newborn state in its cradle. The Jews' underground army, the Haganah, has received intelligence, that Syrian forces are receiving the services of a former Panzer commander, General Gustav Schiller, who is training them in tank tactics. Schiller's former wife, Judith Auerbach Schiller, is a Jewess, who was betrayed by her husband and left to die in a camp. The woman's survived, however, and is out to locate the son Schiller took from her before she was arrested. The Haganah decides to find Judith and use her knowledge to locate the general, identify him and make him reveal the Syrians' attack plans. Smuggled into Palestine and hidden in a kibbutz, Judith is not in the slightest bit interested in the Jewish state or in finding her ex-husband, other than to exact revenge and find her son. Will the Haganah convince her that the future of the Jewish state is more important than her desire to kill General Schiller?
