This breath-taking WW2 action adventures tells an incredible true-life story of heroism and a man's unbreakable will to live.

Norway, 1943: after a failed anti-Nazi sabotage mission leaves his eleven comrades dead, Norwegian resistance fighter Jan Baalsrud (Thomas Gullestad) finds himself on the run from the Gestapo through the snowbound Arctic reaches of Scandinavia.

Over the course of a few months, Baalsrud survives the harshest weather of the Arctic Circle as he flees a cruel and relentless German soldier, Kurt Stage (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), with nothing but the clothes on his back.

But the true beauty of this film - and its moments of genuine levity - comes from the supporting cast of Norwegians who risk everything to get Baalsrud across the border into neutral Sweden. (Some subtitles)
