The war has just ended and Anna (Paula Beer) is still living with Frantz’s parents, who are shattered over their son’s death.

Meanwhile, the citizens of Anna’s small German town are just beginning to emerge from the shadow of the war.

Spying a stranger laying a bouquet of roses on Frantz’s grave one day, the quietly grieving Anna is both surprised and intrigued.

Hesitantly, the visi­tor reveals he is a French soldier, but with the horrors of the war still so raw in everyone’s minds, the small community makes it clear he’s not welcome among them.
