The whole family of 6-year-old Anna dies during the mass execution. The girl stays alive, as mother has covered her with her body. For more than two years Anna hides in a fireplace in a German commandant's office. From her shelter she is looking at the life passing, waiting for the village to be freed from nazis. Impossible, but even in these terrible conditions Anna manages not only to survive, but also to stay a human. Memories of life, being demolished by war and of parents help her as well as one friend, who saved her from a complete loneliness.
