Set in 1940 France an unlikely team pair up to evade the approaching nazis. Little Jacobowsky, a polish jewish intellectual has been one step ahead of the nazis for years. Stjerbinsky is an aristocratic, anti-semitic, Polish Colonel who is trying to get to England. Jacobowsky has a car but can't drive. The Colonel Can and so begins their journey. Accompanied by the colonels girlfriend Marianne they go to a carnival, a jewish wedding and onto a train when the car breaks down. Jacobowsky falls in love with Marianne but it is not to be. He leaves the two to begin his own grand tour of life as the curtain falls.
Based on S.N. Behrman's adaptation of Franz Werfel's play Jacobowsky and the Colonel.
