The fortune and castle of Hans Elde is to go to either von Emmelman or Kurt Zenner for the purpose of rebuilding the village of Elda by refugees that will be re-inhabiting the area. However, the greedy nephew of Elde decides this will not be and has plans to flood the area, killing all the refugees, which includes Kurt Zenner, recently released from a concentration camp. Things seem to go well until the Heap becomes involved.
