One winter night, in the forest near the Carpathians, Georg Znaeym and Ulrich Von Gradwitz are fighting over who owns a worthless piece of land.
When the two enemies come face to face with each other the both have weapons and the thought about killing each other even though they knew it was wrong.
Before any other thought a storm starts and the men are stuck in between the ground and the huge tree that landed on them
After bickering about whose men would come first and who would get saved and who would die, they finally started to show kindness towards each other, and decides to put the land depute to the past.
After being silent for a while the men decide to work together and try to seek help by shouting a hunting call, expecting a response, when they don’t they try again this time Ulrich hears something and following that he sees figures running towards them.
The two men are happy at first when Ulrich sees the men coming towards him, Georg does not believe that men that are coming are his men, and asks Ulrich if it’s his men, when he doesn;t reply he asks him again this time in a frightful tone, Ulrich tells Georg no and that men that he had thought he had seen coming were wolves.
