A True story of German resistance in the war
Though most Germans supported the views of Hitler during the Second World War, what is not commonly known is that there were some inside Germany who did not support the Third Reich.
This film tells the story of two ordinary people, who after their only son is killed, decide that what is happening in Germany and across Europe is wrong.
Thus begins a simple plan of civil disobedience by placing handwritten cards across Berlin with anti-war and anti-Hitler messages.
The Gestapo is determined to find these dissenters in a cat and mouse game that lasted three years.
This action by two ordinary working class people became an important element of the German Resistance.
This film which is based on the international best-selling novel by Hans Fallada, a German who actually had anti-Nazi views during the Second World War, based the storyline on the real life actions of two ordinary people, Otto and Elise Hampel.
