"Turin, nowadays: since the Party won the elections, Italy has plunged into a terrible dictatorship, complete with secret police and forced labor camps. The Resistance seems only a legend, until Marta, Paolo and the other boys of the clique meet Günther, the elderly neighbor who grew up in Germany at the time of the Nazis. In his diary they discover the story of Sophie and Hans Scholl, and the boys of the White Rose, the students who opposed the barbarism of Nazism with all their might. The boys of the Clique understand that the past can rekindle the desire to believe in freedom.. and now they have to find the courage to fight, all together, to obtain it."
