Europe, 1916. Filled with a sense of adventure and euphoria, 24-year old Manfred von Richthofen (Matthias Schweighofer), like many thousands of other young men, goes off to war. A celebrated fighter pilot, he and his friends quickly become icons for the soldiers on the battlefields, and are admired by friends and foes alike. They have their own code of honor, characterized by an athletic ambition, an obsession for technology and chivalrous respectability. They decorate their airplanes with a variety of motifs. Manfred von Richthofen's red Fokker DR_I becomes a feared and yet venerated symbol of the flying squadrons of World War I. However, von Richthofen soon realizes that his status as a hero is misleading. His love for nurse Kate (Lena Headey) opens his eyes to the brutality and barbarity of war - a war that not only leaves no room for honorable chivalry, but also takes friends away from him who risk their lives in audacious air battles.
