Soldier of Orange offers a movie-view of World War II as seen in the Netherlands by civilians and members of the underground during the Nazi occupation. In 1939 six college students, fraternity brothers, pose for a photograph--dashing Erik, mischievous Guus, 'Mr. Particular' Nico, athletic Jan, carefree Alex, and aspiring professor Jack. Then WWII begins and their placid lives, full of wealth and comfort, change irrevocably. Helpless, Erik can only try to survive himself, as some of his best friends die, some turn traitor, and others cover themselves with glory.
