May 1945, German occupation of Denmark ends. A group of young POWs are assigned to embittered Army Sgt. Rassmussen, their job is to neutralize and remove some 45,000 landmines the Nazis planted on a local beach.
Promised that once their work is complete they will be free to return home the group are brutalised, starved and subjected to numerous humiliations by the liberated Danes. As Rassmussen begins to recognise the innocence and youth in his charges he softens to their plight, but can he save them?
Based on true events, one of the many untold stories of WWII, this is a tense watch, a look at the inhumanity of war and how people can find our way back from it.
