The beautiful summer of 1945 in the Owl Mountains. A provisional orphanage is created for ten children that have just been liberated from the Groß-Rosen concentration camp. 20-year-old Hanka, a former prisoner herself, becomes their guardian. The resolute protagonists regain strength and joy after the terrible time of the camp. But the terror returns and breaks the fairy tale. German shepherds from the camp set free by the SS officers just before the camp was liberated now roam the forests.
