Set in France in 1940, the story follows five-year-old Paulette (Brigitte Fossey), who is left traumatised after her parents and pet dog are killed in a Nazi air attack whilst fleeing Paris. She soon finds herself befriended by ten-year-old Michel Dollé (Georges Poujouly),  whose peasant family takes her in.

As Paulette and Michel become best friends, they find a way of coping with the death and destruction that surrounds them by creating their own world, and in particular, a small cemetery in the ruins of an old barn, where they bury Paulette’s dog, and any other dead animals and insects they find.
