Summary Film that blends realism, ghoulish humor, and heartbreaking drama as it dramatizes the destruction of innocence by the war. A five-year old girl, orphaned by the war, takes refuge in a French peasant's home. The son abets her preoccupation with death by killing animals and burying them ceremoniously beside the grave of her dog. The adults, confused by the shattering effects of war, are unable to deal with her psychological needs.
