This drama about partisans in the Tatra Mountains plagued by a snowstorm follows a group of fighters who are forced to fall back. Some of them are wounded and wait for help, which is not coming. Čáp’s last Czechoslovak film was made at the occasion of the 4th anniversary of the Slovak National Uprising. This film was initially successful but later it indirectly caused Čáp’s emigration.
