Les troupes allemandes de la Wehrmacht sont pourchassées par les forces alliées tandis que les déserteurs se font exécuter. Massacres, viols ou encore pillages règnent sur cette Allemagne en pleine déroute. Après avoir perdu son régiment, le jeune brigadier allemand Willi Herold erre pour tenter d'échapper à un commando qui veut l'abattre. Affamé et affaibli, Herold découvre sur son chemin, dans une voiture abandonnée, l'uniforme couvert de médailles d'un capitaine nazi de la Luftwaffe mort. Pour échapper à sa mort programmée, il décide de le revêtir afin de se camoufler et échapper à ceux qui veulent le tuer.
