Julio (Glenn Ford) is the only son of a wealthy Argentinian family. During the years prior to World War II, Julio's relatives relocate to Germany and France, with Julio opting for the latter country, where he opens an art studio. Here he carries on a torrid affair with Marguerite Laurier (Ingrid Thulin), the wife of a newspaper owner.

When World War II breaks out, carefree Julio avoids involvement in the conflict. Only when visited by the spectres of the Four Horseman--war, conquest, famine, and death--does Julio don a uniform.
