1945. L' Allemagne nazie, en pleine anarchie, vit ses dernières heures avant de capituler. Les troupes allemandes de la Wehrmacht sont pourchassées par les forces alliées tandis que les déserteurs se font exécuter. Massacres, viols ou encore pillages règnent sur cette Allemagne en pleine déroute. Après avoir perdu son régiment, le jeune brigadier allemand Willi Herold erre pour tenter d'échapper à un commando qui veut l'abattre. Affamé et affaibli, Herold découvre sur son chemin, dans une voiture abandonnée, l'uniforme couvert de médailles d'un capitaine nazi mort de la Luftwaffe. Pour échapper à sa mort programmée, il décide de le revêtir pour se camoufler et échapper à ceux qui veulent le tuer. Un camouflage idéal, l'uniforme étant le symbole de la puissance et surtout de l'autorité.

High school teacher Rainer Wenger is forced to teach a class on autocracy, despite being an anarchist. When his students, third generation after the Second World War, do not believe that a dictatorship could be established in modern Germany, he starts an experiment to demonstrate how easily the masses can be manipulated. He begins by demanding that all students address him as "Herr Wenger", as opposed to Rainer, and places students with poor grades beside students with good grades—purportedly so they can learn from one another and become better as a whole. When speaking, they must stand and give short, direct answers. Wenger shows his students the effect of marching together in the same rhythm, motivating them by suggesting that they could really annoy the anarchy class, which is below them. Wenger suggests a uniform, to remove class distinction and further unite the group. Mona argues it will remove individuality, as well. Karo shows up to class without the uniform and is ostracised. The students decide they need a name, deciding on "Die Welle" (The Wave). Karo suggests another name, which ends up with one single vote cast by herself.
