April 1940. Den gryende krigen i Europa virker fjern for nordmennene, men verdens øyne er allerede rettet mot Narvik som skiper ut jernmalmen Hitler er avhengig av for å holde det tyske krigsmaskineriet i gang. Natt til 9. april krenkes Norges nøytralitet og tyske soldater går i land. Bykommandanten overgir Narvik uten kamp, men ikke alle er villige til å legge ned våpnene. Et kompani på 200 bevæpnede, norske soldater klarer å bløffe seg ut av byen og tar opp kampen. Blant soldatene finner vi den unge korporalen Gunnar Tofte, som får sin ilddåp i kamp mot de profesjonelle, tyske alpejegerne i fjellene. I Narvik blir Royal Hotell, der hans kone Ingrid Tofte jobber som stuepike og tolk, tyskernes nye hovedkvarter. Fra skyttergraven er det enkelt å vite hvem som er venn og hvem som er fiende. Fra den sivile siden er bildet mer komplisert.
