Yvette, an old woman, describes her experience during the German occupation of France in World War II, when she was persuaded by the Resistance to remain hidden in the secret passages of an old chateau which the Nazis had taken over as a command post, listen to their conversations from behind the walls, and smuggle the information out at night through a secret tunnel.
