In October 1942, in Tobrouk, a French commando raids a German petrol dump. Four French soldiers manage to escape and soon find themselves lost in the middle of the desert. After an exhausting day of walking, they capture a German armoured car and its five soldiers. One soldier survives and is taken prisoner. This is the beginning of a surprising adventure, where - in the face of danger - each man discovers solidarity.
