Full film details

As the Second World War ripples through Europe, men across Germany and neighbouring Austria are called up to fight for their country and the Nazi regime. But while most sign up willingly, Franz Jägerstätter (August Diehl) stands firm against the rule of the Third Reich.

Questioning the morality of the war and troubled by the actions of his nation, the Catholic farmer seeks help and advice from the church. But, despite his prayers, Franz is told that nothing can be done against the Fatherland.

Resolute against playing a part in the atrocities, Franz is persecuted and imprisoned for his opposition, facing death for his treason.

With nothing but bleakness ahead of the conscientious Austrian, he must rely on the love of his wife (Valerie Pachner) and family and his unmoving faith to find strength and keep going in his struggle against those in power.

Depicting the true story of Franz Jägerstätter, this breathtaking historical drama stars Valerie Pachner (The Ground Beneath My Feet, Bad Luck, Egon Schiele: Death and the Maiden), August Diehl (Inglorious Basterds, Salt, Love in Thoughts) and the late Michael Nyqvist (John Wick, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).
