Former Nazi Klaus Abard …
Former Nazi Klaus Abard survives to the 1990s by taking anti-aging pills. He plans to use a time travel trip to return to Germany in 1944 and present Hitler with a hydrogen bomb, so that he can win the war. Unfortunately the pilot, woman-chasing Karel Bures, dies on the morning of the trip and his earnest twin brother Jan impersonates him, without knowing about the plot. The plot goes wrong when they lose the bomb and land near Hitler's bunker in 1941, at a time that the Nazis sense victory. Bures, with two of the plotters, escape capture by the Nazis and make it back to the time machine. Bures programs the machine to return one day before they left, because he figures he can then save his brother and foil the plot.

At the end of May 1918, released prisoners return to the Rumburk garrison from Russian captivity, hoping that the war is over for them. The only thing they want is to get their withheld soldier's pay and then go home. In the meantime, they take pleasure in having fun in the local wine cellar The Northern Rose and listen and watch the temperamental Tonka (Jirina Bohdalová) sing and dance. In an odd way, she gets close to the soldier Noha (Rudolf Deyl). The civilian inhabitants suffer from hunger and shortages. In the barracks and on the training grounds, however, the Austrian drill continues. Its brutal and absurd character is more and more often becoming the cause of the soldiers' discontent. Upon hearing the spreading news that they should return to the front, a rebellion breaks out.
