Camped above a remote rural town in Bulgaria, a group of German construction workers divert the local water supply, boorishly intimidate women and exacerbate tempers by flying a German flag above their camp. Meinhardt stays aloof from the group, preferring the company of the Bulgarian locals, but tempers finally fray between the construction workers and villagers when the white horse that Meinhardt borrows from townsman Adrian goes missing.
