Storyline:1919, shortly after the end of the First World War. Every day Anna (Paula Beer) visits the tomb of her fallen fiancé Frantz (Anton von Lucke). She still lives with Dr. med. Hoffmeister (Ernst Stötzner) and his wife Magda (Marie Gruber), the parents of the dead, and can only be difficult to solve the past. She is also not interested in the advances of Kreutz (Johann von Bülow), who wants to marry her, although the Hoffmeisters encourage her to start a new life. As Anna observes a stranger (Pierre Niney) in the cemetery, who leaves flowers on Frantz's grave, she speaks to him: his name is Adrien and he is a friend of the deceased from prewar times. The Frenchman is not welcomed in the small German town so soon after the war, but Anna likes the mysterious man.
