In 1948, the Soviet Union blockades the Allied sectors of Berlin in order to bring the city completely under their dominance. Sgt. Hank Kowalski and Sgt. Danny McCullough are part of the American force sent to help the war-torn German civilians. Still struggling with the misguided loathing of Germans, their experience and relationships with the men and women of Berlin help them overcome these prejudices. The Big Life was filmed on the location in bombed-out Berlin and is an accurate depiction of this historic event.
