As World War II comes to an end, a group of young German POWs in Denmark are forced to engage in a deadly task—to defuse and clear land mines from the Danish coastline, a process that killed or severely wounded many. The boys, equipped with little or no training in defusing explosives, soon discover that the war is far from over. Inspired by real events, Land of Mine exposes the untold story of one tragic moment in post-war history, sharing a narrative of comradeship, survival, and unexpected friendships while simultaneously questioning the presence of evil that could exist in us all. The film was selected as Denmark’s entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 89th Academy Awards.
