The movie tells the story of the Norwegian war hero Jan Baalsrud’s legendary escape from the Nazis during World War II. 1943 Norway - north of the Arctic Circle. Twelve resistance fighters, on a fishing boat carrying a cargo of explosives, are betrayed by a countryman and attacked by a German minesweeper. Eleven of the men are captured, tortured and killed. Only the twelfth man gets away.

Jan Baalsrud escapes into the merciless winter – unbeknownst of the fact that his determination to survive will turn him into a symbol for the Norwegian resistance. A symbol people are willing to die for. The legendary story of Jan Baalsrud’s escape remains one of the wildest, most unfathomable survival stories of World War II.

Screening made possible by Norwegian Embassy in Bucharest.
