The soldier, Dieter Falke, the girl Adriane Gerst and the Hitler youth boy Hauke Kluge have lost everything and everybody in their lives. They only have each other. They plan to escape together to get away from the Russians who now have the city and to reach the American occupied part of Germany.
In a last-minute skirmish the boy is killed. Dieter and Adriane escape and eventually reach the American zone.
'The Knowing Room' finds the boy alive in a Russian Field Hospital. The Russians are searching for scientists from the German rocket program and they think the boy may have some information they need. When he is well he is taken under the wing of the Russian area commander.
