In 1755, the impoverished Captain Ludvig Kahlen (Mads Mikkelsen, Another Round) sets out to conquer the uninhabitable Danish heath in the name of the King. But the sole ruler of the area, the merciless Frederik de Schinkel (Simon Bennebjerg, The Pact), who believes the land belongs to him, swears revenge when the maid Ann Barbara and her serf husband escape for refuge with Kahlen.

Nominated for the Golden Lion at the prestigious Venice Film Festival, this epic, sweeping historical drama is a gripping, unflinching David vs. Goliath story of resilience, romance and revenge, spectacularly showcasing Mads Mikkelsen as one of the finest actors in modern cinema.
