About The Film
The lives of four strangers intersect tragically in this dramatization of the February 2015 terrorist attacks that rocked Copenhagen. With Europe on edge following Al-Qaeda violence in France, a radicalized gunman reigns a night of terror, targeting a cultural center and synagogue. With gathering dread, the hours prior to the attack are told through the perpetrator’s eyes, and two victims: a Danish filmmaker and a Jewish security watchman. Meantime, a burned-out SWAT officer (Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is key in the manhunt to bring Omar to justice. Danish Academy Award-winning writer-director Ole Christian Madsen’s gripping drama captures the shocking events that forever changed Denmark’s views on homegrown terrorism.
