If Not Us, Who

Germany in the early 60s: a time of departure. Bernward Vesper, son of the Nazi-writer Will Vesper, is rebellious. During the night, he slams angry words into his typewriter, throwing them in the face of the establishment. When he meets Gudrun Ensslin, it’s the beginning of an extreme affair: unconditional, excessive, beyond all thresholds of pain. Together they set off to conquer the world. But less than 10 years later, Bernward is caught up in the madness of drugs and Gudrun throws herself into the armed underground. For both of them, there is no turning back.
