SynopsisThose two women didn't have a choice to live an ordinary life.
Elisabeth Hartnagel's siblings Hans and Sophie Scholl were executed as WW2-Resistance fighters of the 'The White Rose'. For the same reason Anneliese Knoop-Graf lost her brother, Willi Graf. The two women were left behind with a special heritage: being a witness to history. What does that do to a person's life?
While the Scholl's sister frowardly withdraws from the public into her house, where she meets leftovers of her past in every corner, Anneliese Knoop-Graf starts a seemingly endless trip through Germany's commemoration events.
A movie about forgetting and conserving, about a harsh fight for attention and about the struggle for an independent identity beyond the famous siblings. A so far missing perspective on an old topic.
