Based on true events. In an icy cold Europe, the lives of four strangers intersect tragically in this dramatization of the February 2015 terrorist attacks that rocked Copenhagen. With Europe on edge following Al-Qaeda violence in France, a radicalized gunman reigns a night of terror, targeting a cultural center and synagogue.

With gathering dread, the hours prior to the attack are told through the perpetrator’s eyes, and two victims—a Danish filmmaker and a Jewish security officer. Starring Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
