Berlin, June 1940. While Nazi propaganda celebrates victory over France, a couple Anna and Otto Quangel are mourning in a living room in Prenzlauer Berg because their son has died at the front. They have lost their trust and faith in the regime and want to denounce the Fuehrer’s lies. They start writing postcards with anti-Nazi texts and distribute them by secretly leaving them behind in stairwells of all kinds of accessible buildings. The Gestapo chased them for two years until they were arrested in 1942.
