Synopsis
On the Christmas Eve of 1914, in the Western Front in France in World War I, the Scottish, the German and the French troops have a moment of truce and share moments of peace and friendship. When the soprano, Anna Sørensen, succeeds in convincing the Prussian Prince to join her tenor husband, Nikolaus Sprink, to sing for the German high command, Sprink brings her to the front to sing for his comrades in the trench. The Scottis Lieutenant Gordon and the French Lieutenant Audebert have an informal and unauthorized meeting with the German Lieutenant Horstmayer and negotiate a truce for that night, and the priest Palmer celebrate a mass for the soldiers. When their superiors become aware of the event, they have to pay for the consequences of their acts.
