Adaptation of Simon Vestdijk's novel, in which a group of villagers from the Betuwe region commit acts of bravery in the resistance during World War II. They arrange hiding places and relay the location of bridges and bunkers to England. The betrayal of people hiding on a farm makes five men decide to eliminate the local Nazi grocer. But this turns out to be harder than expected. The motto of this characteristic war movie is 'From a nation that is a kind nation, because it does not have many heroes.'
