Synopsis

In World War II Germany, Swing music becomes the underground movement of young people. Two engineering students attempt to be Swing Kids by night and Hitler Youth by day. The impact of this decision is felt acutely by their friends and families. A charming SS officer complicates matters for Peter, whose father was taken away for defending his Jewish colleagues at the University.

Dove Review

This movie about three teen aged friends who lived in Pre World War ll Germany and how their friendship was affected by the rise of Nazism and how much they love to swing dance. And it teaches some lessons like do what you believe is right and stay true to your friends and yourself when everyone else is doing what is wrong. It shows how teenagers and adolescent children who lived in Germany during the times of Hitler used swing music and dancing as a way of rebelling.
