After Kata's husband goes into hiding during WWII, she poses as wife to a man she has never met in order to conceal her Jewish identity. Their volatile arrangement, which if exposed would mean imprisonment or death, eases when they become lovers. This film explores the lack of trust that threatens to consume their relationship.
