He buys some carefully selected horses to take home from a nearby town but on the way he is stopped by a greedy local baron who removes several of his horses apparently unlawfully. When Kohlhaas protests his rights, he discovers that his beloved wife has been ruthlessly killed and so he decides, with his whole world crashing down around him, to embark on a fearless voyage of vengeance. While attempting to gather an army to destroy the monsters who ruined his life, he is confronted by his own religious beliefs which tell him he must forgive his enemies. However, is seems Kohlhaas is willing to face the fiery depths of hell for what those enemies have taken from him.
It's World War II and the German and British armies are firmly engaged in combat. However, when a group of Germans find themselves and their shot down aircraft stranded in the freezing temperatures of the Norwegian wilderness, they chance upon an unoccupied hunting cabin. They soon find that they are not alone as a group of Britons approach having also been shot down. Whilst the Brits attempt to abandon the rules of war and work together to stay alive and find help, the Germans insist upon treating them as prisoners of war. There is initial animosity amongst the rival soldiers, but the longer they spend together, the harder it becomes to maintain the invisible wall between them and they soon find themselves becoming closer. However, they all understand that once they are rescued, they must go back to fighting one another in spite of their friendship and the rules of war must take effect once more.
