During the winter, in a forest near the Carpathians Ulrich Von Gradwitz and Georg Znaeym have been fighting over land.
Ulrich encounters Georg in the woods, both of them have rifles but are thinking about what would happen if they shoot each other.
Then the tree that they are standing next to collapses on them trapping both of them.
While trapped under the tree they are arguing to each other about who’s group will reach them first and cursing each other’s families then Ulrich says that the whole argument is stupid and they become friends
After befriending each other they start thinking about ways to get out and about who’s group will reach them first so that they can start being nice to each other.
They start yelling for help and think that they see people Georg keeps asking Ulrich who they are because the blood in his eyes makes it difficult to see then Ulrich says that the things running towards them are wolves.
