Synopsis
Europe is in the throes of World War II, and the Nazis approach the borders of Sweden. With Sweden caught between Nazi Germany and Stalin's Russia, the country's elites chose a policy of neutrality and compliance, with few daring to speak up against the evil around them. Among those who did, nobody was as loud and as uncompromising as journalist Torgny Segerstedt. In the eyes of many of his countrymen, his pen was far more dangerous to Sweden than the Nazi sword. Amidst the political turmoil of the times, Segerstedt's own personal life took a dramatic and scandalous turn, as he entered into a very public affair with the wife of a close friend.
