Based on actual events, The White Rose tells the story of a group of students at the University of Munich who chose to actively protest the atrocities of the Nazi regime. They published their thoughts in anonymous leaflets, which they titled "The White Rose" and which were distributed throughout Germany and Austria during the summer of 1942 and the winter of 1943. When the students are eventually captured, the police inspector of the town is pressured to obtain a conviction. Will the inspector send the students to certain execution or try to save them? Complex and filled with loyalty and patriotism, The White Rose is an intense and devastating drama confronting a reality that should never be forgotten.
