West Germany, early 1960s. Bernward Vesper, son of an infamous Nazi author, and Gudrun Ensslin begin a passionate romance in the restless atmosphere of provincial Germany. Carrying the burden of the older generation's Nazi history on their young shoulders, they become part of the global uprising, joining forces with leftist writers and political activists.
As the idealistic Bernard risks his sanity to write a world-changing novel, an increasingly radicalised Gudrun embarks on an affair with the charismatic Andreas Baader. Leaving behind her husband and son, Gudrun, Baader and their comrades lead the prominent Red Army Faction to become one of the most notorious terror groups in history.
If Not Us, Who? tells the radical love story behind the explosive revolution.
