A HIDDEN LIFE tells the story of a largely unknown hero. The Austrian farmer Franz Jägerstätter (August Diehl) steadfastly refuses to fight for the Wehrmacht. Even in the face of impending execution, he remains convinced until the end that he has to follow his conscience. He is supported by his deep faith and unshakable love for his wife (Fani Valerie Pachner) and the three children.
