Synopsis:

The man who challenged the Third Reich.

Based on the life of Swedish journalist Torgny Segerstedt, this black and white biopic follows Segerstedt’s one-man battle against Hitler, the Nazi regime and his own country’s neutrality. Officially neutral but fearing German reprisal, Sweden’s leaders did their best to silence the writer, especially as he began attracting the ire of top Nazi officials.
