Synopsis

As the blue cornflowers shot up out of the iron foundation of a powerful new land, they hid from sight those who, in the fight for the Fatherland, gave their own blood to make the fertile ground on which these beautiful and symbolic blooms grew.
In the winter of 1945 a young soldier deserts and returns home to his family. Taken aback by this unexpected turn of events and motivated by love as well as fear, each member of the family reacts impulsively and emotionally. The conflict escalates, testing the parents love for each other, for their children and in the end for the Fatherland, and the story takes a grim turn.
