Slovenia, WWII. Two young orphans, a German girl and a Slovenian boy, escape from a town which has just been bombed. They have heard about a lost valley where there is always peace and they set out to find it. Right above them, an African-American pilot parachutes from his fighter plane shot down by the German army. Both Germans and partisans know that the pilot has survived and are ready to find him.
