Logline: When the French partisans get orders to attack the crack German Das Reich Division things go badly wrong...

Synopsis: A few days after Billy Leigh's nineteenth birthday, Roland Murphy sees him hit in the mouth by a sniper's bullet.

Between the wars, Philippe (Roland’s son) and his best friend Yves are in love with the same girl, Jacqui, but she only has eyes for Yves.

And she really loves the scar on Yves’s face - it makes him look as if he's always smiling.

During the Nazi Occupation of France, Philippe and Yves are constantly on the lookout for German troops who are intent on arresting French kids to send to work in German factories.

To avoid this Compulsory Labour Service scheme, Yves joins the Milice.

But Philippe takes a different route – he joins the Maquis.

While hiding from the Nazis in the forest Philippe goes swimming with some young patriots. He notices that one of them is circumcised - he must be a Jew.

In an abortive attack on a German convoy, Philippe is wounded and found by a German patrol. One of the officers has a scar on his face.

And his mouth is twisted into a permanent smile...
