The love story of Mala Zimetbaum and Edward Galiński, whose feelings for each other began and blossomed in Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Nazi concentration camp in 1943/44, where they met their tragic end. The static images of the film include photographs of the two lovers, photographs of all those who speak about them, a small drawn portrait of Mala and other drawings of the camp as well as a lock of her hair. The moving images of the film include modern snapshots, fragments, details - showing the emotion, the bond between a girl and boy - recorded during the March of the Living in the former Birkenau camp, as the young people proceed along the ramp and later as they disperse among the ruins of the crematoria.
