The year is 1919. In a small town wilting under the crushing summer heat, a war hero is held prisoner in an abandoned barracks. Outside, his mangy dog barks day and night. Not far off in the countryside, a young woman, worn out by working the land, too educated however to be taken for a simple peasant, is waiting and hoping. A judge, who comes to sort out this particular case, is an aristocrat whose principles have been shaken by the war. Three characters and in their midst, a dog which holds the key to this dramatic affair. . .
A dog gives us a real lesson on the absurdities of human warfare.
