WWII has been going on for three years, the German occupation of the Channel Islands continues. On the German side, the pragmatic local commandant Major Richter (Alfred Burke), tries to strike a balance between military necessity and good civil relations. However, his efforts are complicated by the recent imprisonment of Dr. Philip Martel (Bernard Horsfall), who represented the interests of the Guernsey islanders. The local SS officer, Hauptmann Reinicke (Simon Cadell) proves to be a thorn in Richter’s side, always eager to win points with his superiors in Berlin. With the war carrying on, can the fragile harmony between the occupiers and the occupied survive much longer?
