Dramatisation of the inner workings of 1970s radically left-wing German terrorist group The Red Army Faction (RAF). Moritz Bleibtreu, Martina Gedeck and Johanna Wokalek star as Andreas Baader, Ulrike Meinhof and Gudrun Ensslin, the trio at the core of the organisation, which carried out bombings, robberies, kidnappings and assassinations throughout the late 1960s and 70s in a misguided attempt to redress the wrongs of the Nazi generation. Bruno Ganz co-stars as Horst Herold, the head of the German police who must gain an understanding into the young terrorists' reasoning even as he hunts them down.
