Synopsis

Poignant, anti-war drama from director Bernhard Wicki about a group of German boys' attempts to guard a bridge in the dying days of WWII. As the defeated ranks of the Wehrmacht try to escape the advancing American troops, seven boys from a local village are seconded to guard a strategically worthless bridge. Fired up by the patriotic ideology on offer, the boys' resolve is put to the test when American tanks suddenly appear, intent on crossing the bridge.
