Children of the Revolution tells the stories of four women. Ulrike Meinhof and Fusako Shigenobu, who emerged from the student revolutions of 1968 to become leading female revolutionaries of their time (through the activities of Baader Meinhof in Germany and the Japanese Red Army), and their daughters who grew up underground in the infamy and chaos that followed their radical political interventions.
Packed with extraordinary 70s archive footage, the film follows journalists Bettina Röhl and May Shigenobu as they explore the lives of their mothers Ulrike and Fusako.
