Young Austrians Carl Behrend and Pauli Arndt marry as the World War breaks out. Carl is drafted immediately. Pauli and her baby nearly starve to death when her grandfather, a professor, loses his job for speaking out against war. Carl is reported killed en route home for a 10-day furlough, and the baby dies in spite of Pauli's resorting to prostitution to keep him alive. Eventually, Carl does return from the war, Arndt is reinstated, and happiness is restored to the unfortunate family.
