It was made at the Terra Studios in Berlin in late 1926. The film's sets were designed by the art director Alfred Junge.

The film is set along the disputed German-Polish borderland after the First World War where clashes between the two sides threaten to lead to bloodshed. The estate of a young widow is threatened when a local Polish commissioner leads his forces to occupy it.
