Job and his wife, Róza, have been blessed with old age, but not with children. All the children of the Hungarian couple died in adolescence, leaving them without descendents to pass their Jewish heritage on to. Fearful of the oncoming Nazis, they take in a Christian boy, Lackó, who quickly grows to love the patient Job and loving Róza. The bond between father and son is tested when German troops march into their tranquil town.
