It is WWII, and bombs are dropping all around. This is when Hermann Braun and Maria get married. They have one night together before Hermann returns to the front. After the war — they say her husband died — Maria has an affair with the black G.I. Bill. But Hermann returns unexpectedly, and in the ensuing confrontation, Maria hits Bill with a bottle, killing him. Hermann pleads guilty and is sentenced to jail. While waiting for Hermann's release, Maria meets the industrialist Oswald, becoming an indispensable part of his life and firm. But when the time comes, Hermann disappears without a trace.
