It is Spring 1944 but for dancer Rose, entertainer Merry, pilot Felix and spy Richard the end of the war is still not in sight. Friends have been killed, love has been lost, and it seems that the relentless violence and pain of separation will continue forever.
Desperately tired after living rough with Italian partisans, Richard makes a mistake behind enemy lines that results in devastating tragedy.
Rose, performing for the troops advancing across France, at last finds a man she feels she can love and is forced to make the most difficult decision of her life.
Felix, Merry’s lover, is returned to him from the jaws of death only to be separated from him again by the demands of duty.
But while the battle rages on they will all fight for the future. In war and peace, in joy and despair, life continues – but never as expected.
