The story is set right after World War I in the small German town of Quedlingburg. As she mourns the death of her fiancé, Frantz, who died in the battlefield, Anna (Paula Beer) finds a Frenchman, Adrien (Pierre Niney), leaving flowers on his grave. Adrien tells her he’s an old friend of Frantz’s from Paris, but neither Anna nor Frantz’s parents remember ever hearing about him.

After accepting him into her life, Anna and Adrien end up developing feelings for each other. But Adrien has a secret and cannot find the way to tell her the truth.
