Enjoying the nightlife of 1943 Copenhagen, jazz guitarist Arne Itkin (David Dencik, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) is seemingly immune to the hardships of war, as the Danish government opts for a compliant relationship with Nazi Germany. He is initially skeptical when his terrified wife hears rumors about deportation of Danish Jews. However the overnight raid forces the couple to flee with their five-year-old son. They set out for a fishing village where refugees await passage to Sweden by boat. Amidst lurking danger from the Gestapo and their collaborators, the family puts its fate in the hands of strangers whose allegiance and motives are not always clear.
