Vienna 1945: The powder keg of war and the Russian occupation as seen through the innocent eyes of nine-year old Christine. Little does she know about peace, much as children today know little about war. Bombed out and penniless, she and her family are put up in a fancy Nazi villa in the outskirts of Vienna. They now have a roof over their heads, nothing more. After the German soldiers capitulate, the Russians take over the house. Everybody is scared of the Russians. Everybody, except Christine.
