Brief synopsis

English:
1914. Alsace is German since 1871.
A farm near the border, near the crest of the Vosges, on the Alsatian side. Luise lives there alone with her father, who hires Hélène, a French girl who’s a bit of a tomboy, unbelieving but hard worker. Everything separates them but Elsa seems to be moved by Luise. One evening, in play, Hélène ventures a kiss. The next day, Luise's father dies suddenly.
War is declared on the same day. But Hélène decides to stay with Luise to help her on the farm. Later, a young German deserter, Hermann, hides in their house.
While the relationship between Hélène and Luise takes a romantic turn and a fox is lurking around the henhouse, Hermann starts playing a dangerous game and tensions are rising.

1914. L'Alsace est allemande depuis 1871. Une ferme non loin de la frontière, près de la crête des Vosges, du côté alsacien. Luise (20 ans) vit seule avec son père, qui embauche Emma (24 ans), une française garçon manqué, non croyante mais travailleuse. Tout les sépare mais Emma semble émue par Luise. Un soir, par jeu, Emma risque un baiser. Le lendemain, le père de Luise meurt soudainement. La guerre est déclarée le même jour. Mais Emma décide de rester avec Luise pour l'aider à la ferme. Plus tard, un jeune déserteur allemand, Hermann, se cache dans leur maison. Alors que la relation entre Emma et Luise prend une tournure romantique et qu'un renard se cache dans le poulailler, Hermann commence à jouer à un jeu dangereux et les tensions montent.
