Film opens showing a Partisan Sentry posted outside Marshall Tito's mountain stronghold in Drvar, Western Bosnia, Yugoslavia, during the Spring of 1944, in World War 2. Views of other sentries on guard duty. A Partisan officer steps onto the porch of the headquarters and looks through a pair of binoculars. Closeup of a sentry. Scene shifts to Marshall Tito stepping from the main porch to a lower one, accompanied by American Office of Strategic Services (OSS) Officer, Morris “Moe” Berg, and British Brigadier General Fitzroy Maclean, Winston Churchill's special envoy to the Yugoslav leader. Tito smokes a pipe, as he and Berg converse. MacLean smokes a cigarette. In next scene Berg is also smoking a cigarette. Moe Berg removes his hat and tosses it over the railing (perhaps because Tito is not wearing one). Tito pumps his arm several times while MacLean removes his hat. Then, speaking to MacLean, Berg pumps his arm as well. Next, they are joined by Tito's Chief of Staff, General Koča Popović. Views of Tito and Popović. Change of scene shows a photographer upon a railing taking a still picture of Tito and his Partisan Supreme Command (cabinet and principal staff officers). After the photographer leaves, they remain together and some pet Tito's dog, Tigar.
