Heimkehr der Fronttruppen deals with the lost generation of soldiers returning from the war. In his desperation, the classicist Friedrich Becker finds a straw to cling to in Christianity. The dramatist Erwin Stauffer is still seeking happiness in love. And the Freikorps officer Johannes Maus introduces the character of a young former soldier, his struggle for an allegedly healthy Germany a portent of the time of National Socialism. Meanwhile, the German front troops are arriving in Berlin, and a peace conference is being prepared in Paris.
