Based on true events – Summer, 1939 and Thomas Miller (Eddie Izzard) has taken the controversial role of teaching English to the daughters of high-ranking Nazis at a finishing school on the south coast of England. Despite a sentiment of war creeping across Europe, the girls continue to learn deportment, Shakespeare, fitness, and how to be a faithful members of Hitler’s League of German Girls.
Under the watchful eye of their headmistress Miss Rocholl (Judi Dench), and her devout assistant Ilse Keller (Carla Juri), the girls practice their English and learn how to represent the ideal of German womanhood. But in the worldwide fervor of nationalism, loyalty proves to be more important than truth, endangering the life of the idealistic teacher who has taken it as his mission to protect his German students from harm and to save their hearts and minds from the grip of Hitler.
