Based on real events, from visionary writer-director Terrence Malick (Days of Heaven, The Tree of Life), A Hidden Life is the story of an unsung hero, Franz Jägerstätter, who refused to fight for the Nazis in World War II. When the pious Austrian farmer is faced with the threat of execution for treason, it is his unwavering faith and his love for his wife Fanni and children that keeps his spirit alive. A Hidden Life is a searing exploration of the consequences of upholding one’s convictions in a time of terrifying upheaval.
