In April 1940, German soldiers descended upon Oslo with three targets: the King, the government and Norway’s gold reserves. Within only a few hours, parliamentary secretary Fredrik Haslund had brought together an unlikely team: his sister, bank staff, truck drivers, and a famous poet. Their mission? To move 50 tonnes of gold across the country to reach an Allied shipping convoy while outsmarting and evading Nazi forces.

With an all-star Norwegian cast, this first-ever Norwegian Viaplay Original film is based on an inspiring true story of courage, grit, and tenacity. Balancing a serious story with moments of lightness and humour, it is an uplifting and powerful tale of an ordinary man given an extraordinary task, and what an unlikely group of people are capable of when faced with imminent danger.
