In German concentration camps during World War II prisoners work, meditate, face constant bullying, and sometimes choose death over life. Suddenly a Lithuanian teacher and a Russian Navy officer, two prisoners of war, make an impulsive escape attempt. Not wanting to be caught they decide to get rid of all their clothes. Naked fugitives travel through the forest and enter a resort for SS officers near a Baltic seaside. Here they try to assimilate, but for how long?
