On 9 April 1940, Nazi Germany attacks Denmark demanding immediate and unconditional surrender. The government surrenders within a few hours and starts cooperating with the Nazis. Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic, Denmark’s ambassador to America, daredevil and man of the world Henrik Kauffmann, is willing to risk everything. He refuses to give in to the German demands, and instead he initiates a rebellious plan to defeat Hitler and give the Danish people back their freedom.
