In the summer of 1942, as war rages, a series of anonymous leaflets appears around the University of Munich, speaking out against escalating Nazi atrocities. The leaflets are hidden in public places or mailed to addresses selected at random. Natalya Petrovich, a student, knows who is behind the leaflets - a secret group called the White Rose, led by siblings Hans and Sophie Scholl. She willingly enters the White Rose's circle, and risks everything alongside her friends. But even among those she trusts most, there is no guarantee of safety - and when danger strikes, she must take an extraordinary gamble in her own personal struggle to survive.
