The movie is based on the true story of a high school classroom that becomes the site of a political battle of wills.  In 1956 East Germany, a group of twelfth-grade students decide to show their solidarity with the victims of the 1956 Hungarian uprising by staging two minutes of silence during lessons. Their teacher is shocked and confused and reports the incident. The students slowly realize the growing gravity of the situation. The director deftly weaves together threads of political tension, adolescent rebellion and institutional menace.
