Set during World War II, somewhere in Transylvania. A German soldier is found dead near a village. The local authorities must find the killer, or they all will be shot by the Nazis the next morning. There's no way to find the culprit, but there's Ipu, the village fool. The elders promise him a hero's funeral if he claims responsibility for the murder and agrees to die in their place.
