The film was made during the First World War and it serves as an allegory to the situation.
When a young girl finds a beautiful dead lily in the woods, she asks her grandfather to tell her about it. He tells her an allegory about the Lily of Belgium: The lily stands in splendor beside a stream, admired by the creatures of the woods. But an army of beetles, bent on conquering new territories, wants to cross the stream – and the lily is blocking their way.
