During the Second World War in Zagreb, the Ustasha government persecutes Jews with ever-increasing severity. A young Jewish woman named Ruth manages to avoid going to a concentration camp only by a stroke of luck, but ends up losing her parents and brother. Family friends provide her with refuge and marry her to their student son to protect her from persecution. As this fictitious marriage restricts his freedom, the newlywed husband protests, but soon realises there is no other hope to save the girl he has been friends with since childhood. Before long, the young couple really fall in love, but due to a careless mistake Ruth ends up in the "Ninth Circle", an infamous camp for young women.
