While the planet is shaken by the terrible events of the World War II, another war is been played out in a remote corner of the French countryside. The children of neighbouring villages Longeverne and Velran have always hated each other. Now their battle takes a new turn; prisoners will have the buttons of their clothes removed and return home almost naked, vanquished, humiliated. The “War of the Buttons” has been declared and whichever village collects the most buttons will be declared the victor.
