May 1945: The Netherlands has been liberated, but not everyone is celebrating. Wies, for example, is ashamed because her daughter is pregnant by a German. She tries to hide her from the outside world.
WW II has just ended. The Dutch celebrate the liberation, but not Wies’ family. Wies lives with her husband and two daughters and runs a grocery store. In the war, her daughter Nellie got pregnant, by a German. Her head was shaved bald by the merry-making hordes as a traitor. Wies’ dilemma now is: to live in shame, or choose for her child and grandchild?
