Germany in the 1970s: murderous bomb attacks, the threat of terrorism and the fear of the enemy inside are rocking the very foundations of the still fragile German democracy. The radicalised children of the Nazi generation lead by ANDREAS BAADER (Moritz Bleibtreu), ULRIKE MEINHOF (Martina Gedeck) and GUDRUN ENSSLIN (Johanna Wokalek) are fighting a violent war against what they perceive as the new face of fascism: American imperialism supported by the German establishment. Their aim is to create a more humane society but by employing inhuman means they not only spread terror and bloodshed, they also lose their own humanity.
