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.

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?
