In post-World War II Denmark, a group of young German POWs are forced to clear a beach of thousands of land mines under the watch of a Danish Sergeant who slowly learns to appreciate their plight.
Selected as Denmark's submission for the Foreign Language Film Award at the 89th Academy Awards.
Sgt. Carl Rasmussen:
Those of you who count the mines, make sure my card is updated. This task is as important as defusing mines.
In the opening scene after Sgt. Rasmussen takes a flag from a German soldier we see him yelling at another soldier with nothing in his hands. In the next shot the flag is back in his hand.
