'Lokalplan 219' is the nickname for an abandoned empty field in Gentofte, Denmark. Just a few meters next to 'Lokalplan 219' lies a major, noisy highway which makes it quite impossibly for anyone to live there. Nevertheless, Gentofte Kommune plans to build a block of houses (entended for immigrants) on the field. Gentofte is one of the richiest places to live in Denmark and houses some of the most conservative politicians. Even the mayor of Gentofte thinks it's a marvelous idea to put the immigrants there.

Originally, the idea for the series of 'Magtens billeder' came into being in 1997 when Folketinget (Danish Parliament) set up a research project entitled 'Den Danske Magtudredning' (the Account of Power in Denmark). In spring 2003 Danmarks Radio and Det danske Filminstitut announced an open competition, and received 111 proposals for documentaries. 12 of these were selected for the series. See more
