Frederic (Rock Hudson) is forced to flee for his life after Rinaldi (Vittorio De Sica) is executed by firing squad for defeatism and suspicion of being a german spy. Forced to go on the run from the Italian authorities for desertion, he reunites with Catherine (Jennifer Jones) and they row to Switzerland to hide out.
They stay in Switzerland to allow Catherine’s pregnany to advance until she gives birth. Following a difficult delivery, a caesarean section is performed, but the baby, a boy, is stillborn. Catherine and Frederic share one final heartfelt talk about the future and Frederic’s life without her and finding new love before she dies. Frederic walks out of the hospital, alone and heart broken, while reflecting on the time they shared together during their relationship.
