There is only a very thin line between heroism and cowardice. Courage is will power, which no man has enough to spare. If used, it is soon exhausted. Courage is capital, which we gradually spend. Thus, the last order may be the order to pay out the account drawing to zero. This is the main topic and the artistic motto of this wartime psychological drama. North Africa, World War II, Fall 1941. Jiří Pospíchal, eighteen years old, signs up as a volunteer in the Czechoslovak army. His naive ideas about heroism are brutally confronted with the hell of the African desert, complicated relationships in his unit and the ubiquitous threat of death. All this takes its cruel toll in the shape of his gradual loss of self-respect and courage.
