In order to save his old friends, Rudi suggests a deal: the drawing in exchange for the Kaufmanns’ freedom. But he has overestimated his influence.

Filmposter Vier Tage im Mai Plakat Film

These four days in May, during which time the world holds its breath; four days, which will change the 13-year-old forever. The boy wants to be a soldier and prove himself a hero, but instead, he ends up in the captivity of the captain and his 7-man reconnaissance patrol. They take up their observation post in the orphanage on the coast where the young boy lives. Weary from fighting and in an attempt to avoid any further conflict with German troops on a nearby beach, the captain and his men are all waiting for an end of the war – and start dreaming of life again. But the boy tries to instigate the hostile troops against each other. What he doesn’t suspect, however, is that the real enemy comes from an unexpected side: a Russian major, who has long had it in for the captain. Now the war, which almost seemed to finally be over, moves into the orphanage for one last battle; one which turns brothers into enemies and enemies into brothers. The end of the war is the end of childhood. A film by Achim von Borries, based on a true story.
