Restless Night

A protestant military chaplain with the German army is the presiding judge at a summonary court held during the attack on Russia in World War II. The pastor has to judge the fate of a corporal who fell in love with a Russian Woman, deserted to be with her, and, clad as a Russian live with her. The soldier is sentenced to die. Many years later, the pastor recalls the incident in refusing a position as chaplain in the Bundeswehr, as he has come to hold himself accountable for the horrors of World War II.
