Directed by Stephen Edwards
A young, good-looking city girl, Marie, marries into a small Austrian town of Schwarzwald. A little vain for a small-town, she likes to dress up and makes her own clothes. The town is by Austrian border, in the area, forcibly annexed by Czechoslovakia in 1920. Most of the Czech-speaking citizens chose German nationality at the beginning of WW2. While peaceful during the war, the area was swept by violence right after the war. Fourteen wealthiest town inhabitants are forced in front of a people’s court by group of malicious neighbours and murdered. Marie with her two children cross the border into the woods, where they build a temporary shed of branches.
