Summary
"At a session of the International Tribunal of War Crimes, a judge charges Nazi party leader Wilhelm Grimm with crimes against humanity. After Grimm pleads not guilty, the first witness, Father Warecki, is called to the stand. The reverend recalls the spring of 1919, just after the end of World War I: In his small Polish village, the news that Poland is to become a republic is greeted with cheers by the villagers, who eagerly anticipate their independence. When Grimm returns from the war after fighting on the side of Germany, the village graciously welcomes him and offers him his former job as a teacher. War has made Grimm, who lost a leg in battle, an embittered and cynical man who refuses to accept Germany's defeat. Schoolteacher Marja Paeierkowski, Grimm's fiancée, tries to comfort him, but Grimm resents being relegated to a small backwater village and scorns the townspeople as 'village idiots.' Grimm's diatribe frightens Marja, and three days prior to their wedding, she decides to postpone the ceremony and go to Warsaw. Convinced that Marja deserted him because of his missing leg, Grimm becomes even more resentful when Jan Stys, one of the students, ridicules him as being unfit for a Polish woman. Three months later, Marja, convinced that her love can restore Grimm's humanity, decides to return and marry him. She arrives home just as Jan is being accused of molesting his girl friend, Anna Oremski"--Publisher's website (www.rarefilmsandmore.com)
