The complicated history between film and the interpretation of history is raised in this film, in which against the backdrop of various interpretations of the annexation of Austria by Hitler's Germany a domestic idyll is connected with the arrival of German soldiers in Vienna - the annexing of Austria to the Nazi empire. Taught as though it were a violent occupation, the image of a smiling local police officer, already wearing his swastika, portrays the annexation more as a pleasant afternoon visit that people were long look forward to.
