Anna (Paula Beer) is a bereft young German woman whose fiancé, Frantz, was killed in the trenches of World War I. Adrien (Pierre Niney), a French veteran of the war, makes a mysterious appearance in her town, placing flowers on Frantz’s grave. Adrien’s presence is met with resistance by the small community still reeling from Germany’s defeat, yet Anna gradually becomes closer to the handsome and melancholy young man, as she learns of his deep friendship with Frantz.
