In the winter of 1943 two young Jews escape, via sewer tunnels, from the atrocities underway in the Warsaw ghetto. The young man makes his way to a supposed safe-house only to discover it over-run with Germans. Another tenant befriends him and they begin an affair while she protects the three of them from the Nazis.
