~Plot Synopsis~
Alouette, the daughter of prosperous French vintner LeSieur Juste DeLarme, secretly marries
Bertrand Beaubien even though her father wants her to wed a wealthy German named Kurt Von
Klassner. After Kurt slays Bertrand, Alouette is forced to marry the brutal German, and only her love
of her little son Bertrand, whom Kurt imagines is his offspring, but who actually is the slain
Frenchman's, saves her from complete unhappiness. Years later, when the Germans invade France
during World War I, Kurt assists them even though they have killed his father-in-law. Bertrand's
young sweetheart is killed during the German occupation of the village, and fiercely determined to
drive them out, he enlists in the French army. With the arrival of the French forces, the town is
rescued, and Kurt, through Bertrand's testimony, is arrested as a spy.
