During WW II, young German boys of privilege or exceptional ability come to special academies to be trained as future leaders in the Nazi party. In one such Napola, Friedrich Weimer, a working-class 17 year old with exceptional boxing prowess, becomes friends with Albrecht Stein, the Governor's son, a sensitive young writer opposed to Nazi ideology and the war. Before long, Friedrich must choose between his own bright future in the Third Reich and Albrecht's moral imperative.
