Plot Summary: Set during World War II, this movie follows German teenagers who attend a napola - a special institution for gifted boys that turns them into the Nazi elite as they become ruthless servants of the Fuhrer. Friedrich is admitted into a napola because of his boxing skills, which he uses as a means to escape his poor working class background. His best friend at the napola is the Governor's son - sensitive, caring, and opposed to Nazi ideology. As their friendship develops, Friedrich struggles with Nazi ideology and his best friend's pacific beliefs.
