Refugees leaving town using various modes of transporation. Couples walking, women pushing prams, one pram has a rabbit in a cage atop. Horse-drawn carts with people and possessions in the back. One of the carts has a flat tire but continues anyway. A couple of cars, one with bicycles atop, stuffed so full of belongings that the passengers ride, stanidng, on the side bumpers. More shots of refugees moving slowyly down a road. Empty, destroyed town, dead horses in the street. Refugees on side of road, German Army trucks on the other. (Good sense of dislocation and movement.)
