When their Munich home is bombed in the spring of 1945, Anna and her eleven-year-old son Felix seek sanctuary in Anna’s childhood village in Bavaria. Neighbour Feik was Anna’s old school friend and is now a loyal Nazi, the local bigwig who keeps the whole village in line.
While Anna has a tough time fitting in and playing the convinced National Socialist, Felix feels increasingly drawn to his new friends. As a city boy he wants to fit in – at all cost!
An important tale of belonging, Dear Mr. Führer is based on the childhood memories of scriptwriter Josef Einwange.
