Storyline

The story about Swedish ambassador in Chile - Harald Edelstam - and his heroic actions to protect the innocent people from the execution during and after the military coup on September 11th 1973. We travel with Edelstam during the terrible moments just after the coup and follows his never-ending fight for human rights, law and order. What drove him? And what price did he end up paying for his total commitment? Haunted by his own demons the we experiences on close hand how a womanizer desperately searches to find love again, a task only doable, if he can fight his own past and redeem himself. After saving hundreds - maybe even thousands - he is challenged once more, this time to save his newfound love from the death penalty issued by the regime. Another impossible task and a desperate chase against time. Based on a true story about a man, that did, what all of us only dreams of. Written by Producer

Fantastic Movie! Absolutely Great!
29 September 2007 | by henrikhenkebenkeSee all my reviews

This movie is really good and I strongly recommend it! It has a realistic feel over it(I know, The Sweds speak English to each other

but frankly I don't care, and Im Swedish)!

Harald Edelstam was a true hero and its all very clear in this film.

Sometimes it could be difficult to understand but it not that often.

So if you feel like seeing a really good movie, go see this one! Its an

Important movie who shows the heroic deeds of a true hero.

Its actually one of the best Swedish films i've ever seen! Finally the Swed's know how to make a big screen movie!

Its worth the money.
