German drama following the stories of five friends as their lives take different paths during the Second World War. In Berlin, 1941, Wilhelm and his younger brother Friedhelm are heading to fight on the Eastern Front, Charlotte is joining the Wehrmacht as a nurse, while Greta's Jewish boyfriend Viktor tries to persuade his parents to leave the country. Not for the faint-hearted, this is an intense mini-series, and bring your reading glasses, because it's subtitled.
