World War II, 1943. A group of German soldiers returning after an unsuccessful intelligence service, but not reaching its position, gets under heavy artillery fire. One of the soldiers, Friedrich, manages to escape by diving into a deep crater in the middle of the battlefield. The soldier expects to return to his group once the fire dies down. But then the unexpected happens: a Soviet soldier slides down the crater. Friedrich, unable to come to his senses, commits a mortal hit with his bayonet.

The situation in many ways familiar to the majority of the soldiers, would have remained a simple soldier’s death in the midst of the chaos of the war, but one circumstance changes everything: Friedrich can not get out of the bottomless pit in a daylight until it gets dark. The German soldier has no other option, but to spend the whole light day together with the dying Russian.
