What is a moral person to do in a time of savage immorality? The question that tormented Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German clergyman of great distinction who actively opposed Hitler and the Nazis. His convictions cost him his life. The Nazis hanged him on April 9, 1945, less than a month before the end of the war. Bonhoeffer's last years, his participation in the German resistance, his moral struggle and love for Maria von Wedemeyer are dramatised in this film.
Bonhoeffer: Agent of Grace sheds light on the little-known efforts of the German resistance and the heroic rebellion of Bonhoeffer, a highly regarded Lutheran minister who could have kept his peace and saved his life but instead paid the ultimate price for his beliefs.
