The film takes place in the summer of 1944 . A branch of the Home Army operating in Sącz region is being decimated by the Germans during attempts to take over the dump of weapons and ammunition from England . About 20 soldiers are fired from the encirclement, including the commander - major "Grandfather" - and his deputy - captain Stańczyk. The partisans are trying to get to the ruins of a nearby castle; it was there that the last container of ammunition was to fall. The commander sends two people to scout. Only one comes back, without ammunition.
