DANMARKS SØNNER / Sons of Denmark

DANMARKS SØNNER / Sons of Denmark

Denmark 2025. One year after a major bomb attack in Copenhagen radicalisation has intensified and ethnic tensions are running high. The next election is near, and the extremely nationalist political leader Martin Nordahl is set for a landslide victory. 19-year-old Zakaria gets involved in a radical organisation, where he forms a bond with Ali. The two men cannot agree with the current state of the country, which is turning on its own citizens because of their migration background, and decide to act. As the men try to make their mark, their brotherhood will be tested and their actions will have grave consequences. (Danish Film Institute)
