In the winter of
1944, American soldiers led by Will Knott (Ethan Hawke) are assigned to
capture a small squad of German soldiers posted in France's Ardennes forest.
Tired of war, the Americans have already lost half their division and
discover that their German enemy is equally unwilling to fight. With Jewish
soldier Stan Shutzer (Arye Gross) interpreting, the Germans and Americans
agree on a plan that will let the former surrender without violence -- but
then, tragedy strikes.
