The young priest Ulrich Zwingli makes waves with his increasing attacks on the Catholic Church's excesses. However, he almost triggers a civil war when he marries the young widow Anna and tries to end the prevailing system of fear and oppression.
Like Luther and Calvin, Zwingli is one of the leading reformers of the Catholic Church. His revolutionary ideas focused on the church, but also didn't stop at the state, the military and society. Award-winning director Stefan Haupt („The Circle“, „Elisabeth Kübler-Ross”, “Utopia Blues”) directs the gripping true story with historical accuracy and emotional depth. Maximilian Simonischek („Hindenburg: The Last Flight“, „Divine Order“) delivers a stunning performance as Zwingli - one of Europe’s most courageous, religious men. Also starring are Stefan Kurt (“Dreileben”) and Anatole Taubman (“Quantum of Solace”, “P.O.W.”, “Servants”).
