September 1938: in a heatwave Europe tensely awaits the outcome of the Munich conference. In Paris people are waiting too, among them Mathiew, Jacques and Philippe - not one of them ready to fight.
Cutting from one scene to the next, Satre depicts the hopes, fears and self-deceptions of Munich, building a powerful montage of that critical week when Europe, in its pathetic longing for a reprieve, blinkered itself against the threat of war.
