Suspense and intrigue infuse the thrilling tale of Albert, who flees to Switzerland to escape Nazi persecution and is given shelter by villagers Fritz and Emma. Unable to father a child, the farmer proposes that Albert takes his place. At first repelled by the idea, Emma eventually relents, only to find herself falling for the young stranger. A maze of jealousy and betrayal erupts, while frequent visits by a Nazi patrolman add another layer of suspense.
