April 1945. The Red Army is invading Berlin. Women fall victim to rape in a half-destroyed house. One of them is Anonyma, who had been a journalist and photographer. In her desperation she decides to look for an officer who can protect her. What happens is what she had least been prepared for. A relationship develops with the Russian officer Andrej that would feel like love were it not for the barrier that keeps them enemies till the end.
