Sophia Magdalena Scholl was a German student and anti-Nazi political activist. She was active within the White Rose non-violent resistance group in Nazi Germany.

She got convicted of high treason after having been found disturbing anti-war leaflets at the University of Munich with her brother Hans.

The Nazi regime used a guillotine to execute the 21-year old University student. Sophie practiced nonviolent activism.

This documentary explores her final days leading up to her death. Her last words were “Such a fine, sunny day, and I have to go... What does my death matter, if through us, thousands of people are awakened and stirred to action?”
