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.
The film was shot at historically authentic locations, including in Oksbøllejren and areas in Varde.
Sgt. Carl Rasmussen:
Those of you who count the mines, make sure my card is updated. This task is as important as defusing mines.
The boys keep having the same 'fresh' haircut throughout the movie (that covers three months). It's unlikely that they had a hairdresser around, or even a pair of scissors.
