World War II. The fictional French town of Vilneuve is occupied by German troops. Ordinary inhabitants have to get used to the order established by the new authorities. Friendship, love, morals. Will the townspeople be able to keep these indisputable values in conditions of hunger, cold, fear and deprivation?

The occupation of France was strikingly different from the behavior of the Nazis in the invaded USSR. At the expense of France, Hitler did not plan to expand the living space for the Germans, and the French themselves, unlike the Slavs, were considered a full-fledged people.

Thus, for example, the French police continued to work under the control of the Germans. Cultural life did not fade out either. Museums, variety shows and theaters operated. At the same time the revenue of the latter increased threefold compared to the pre-war period.
