This German drama is based on the best-selling Stefan Aust book and examines the beginnings of the West German far-left militant group known as the Red Army Faction. When a German protestor is shot and killed during the Shah of Iran's visit to West Berlin, journalist Ulrike Meinhof and her lover, Andreas Baader, carry out a fire-bombing, serve prison time, part for a time after their release, and then reunite, attracting a variety of individuals who all live together. They eventually form the RAF militant group carrying out bank robberies and other criminal acts of domestic terrorism.
