In the Nazi-occupied Norwegian village of Trollness, citizens are preparing to resist their invaders. As British forces sneak a cache of weapons into the woods near the village, town doctor Martin Stensgard (Walter Huston) ; his beautiful young daughter, Karen (Ann Sheridan) ; and her fisherman fiancé, Gunnar (Errol Flynn), lead the resistance. But when Karen’s Nazi-collaborator brother, Johann (John Beal), reappears in town, she must decide whether to betray her family for her village.
