Germany in the 1970s: Murderous bomb attacks, the threat of terrorism and the fear of the enemy inside are rocking the very foundations of the yet fragile German democracy. The radicalised children of the Nazi generation lead by Andreas Baader, Ulrike Meinhof and Gudrun Ensslin are fighting a violent war against what they perceive as the new face of fascism: American imperialism supported by the German establishment, many of whom have a Nazi past. Their aim is to create a more humane society but by employing inhuman means they not only spread terror and bloodshed, they also lose their own humanity. The man who understands them is also their hunter: the head of the German police force Horst Herold. And while he succeeds in his relentless pursuit of the young terrorists, he knows he's only dealing with the tip of the iceberg

Als Oberstleutnant Anton Grubitz (Ulrich Tukur) den linientreuen Stasi-Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler (Ulrich Mühe) auf den erfolgreichen Dramatiker Georg Dreyman (Sebastian Koch) und seine Lebensgefährtin (Martina Gedeck) ansetzt, verspricht er sich davon einen Karriereschub. Womit er nicht gerechnet hat: Das intime Eindringen in die Welt der Observierten verändert auch den Stasi-Mann. Das Eintauchen in DAS LEBEN DER ANDEREN - in Liebe, Literatur, freies Denken und Reden - eröffnet Wiesler eine nie gekannte Welt, der er sich immer weniger entziehen kann.
