German drama is based on the real life events surrounding the German White Rose resistance group, an organisation of German students and conscientious objectors who opposed the Nazi regime and the war. In Munich in 1943, student Sophie Scholl (Julia Jentsch) and her brother Hans (Fabian Hinrichs) are arrested for handing out leaflets opposing the regime. Subjected to brutal interrogation by Gestapo officer Robert Mohr (Gerald Alexander Held), Sophie refuses to break, until Mohr makes it clear that her failure to confess will cost her the lives of her family and friends.
The film is based on the actual interrogation transcripts from the Nazi archives.
