| War, Drama
During WW2, in a Nazi-occupied country, a local partisan blows-up a German military train, prompting the Germans to take civilian hostages to be shot if the culprit doesn't surrender before a deadline.
Although the film is mostly an Italian production, the story takes place in Yugoslavia. There are several hints about this, even if no specific country name is mentioned during the film. One hint, the names of most villagers are Serbian, Croatian and Slovenian. Second hint, the proclamation - warning poster on the wall of a building is written in Slovenian. The Slovenian word Odredba, meaning Proclamation, Decree, Provision, Regulation is clearly seen as the title of the German army poster warning the local populace against acts of sabotage against the occupying forces.
