On a weekend leave from the French trenches of World War II, Saul encounters Belle, a beautiful young woman accused of being a traitor to the French Resistance. Against her will, Saul barricades himself in her home in an attempt to hold off her would-be executioners - and the two are slowly drawn into a passionate affair. But their liaison is further complicated by the sudden appearance of an American GI, with his own plans for Belle. The film was to be a co-production, but the French pulled out. This combined with bankruptcy of a contracted U.S. distributor, forced this to fully be a New Zealand production.
