Against the backdrop of Adolf Hitler's nihilistic regime, the true story of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's courage and compassion burns like an eternal flame in the darkness. Instead of kowtowing to the Fuhrer's despicable edicts, he feels duty-bound to stop his beloved country from disintegrating into physical and moral chaos. Bonhoeffer refuses to be a victim, instead he looks forward with an optimism and defiance to a better world. With its emphasis on heroic deeds in the direst of imaginable settings, to say nothing of a love interest, Dietrich Bonhoeffer's story inspires and compels its audience to find the strength within themselves to face their own challenges with evil.
BONHOEFFER is produced by Jill Wilkinson.
