As World War Two comes to an end, a group of German POWs, boys rather than men, are captured by the Danish army and forced to engage in a deadly task – to defuse and clear land mines from the Danish coastline. With little or no training, the boys 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.

Ann Hornaday - WASHINGTON POST
"With its muted colors and naturalistic lighting, the film aptly captures the beauty of seaside locales that frame the human struggle at the story's heart."
Godfrey Chesire - ROGEREBERT.COM
"LAND OF MINE is a powerful epic, superbly acted, tense and unsettling, but also poignant and occasionally tender."
Claudia Puig - THEWRAP
"LAND OF MINE is tough and admirably grim, turning a harrowing history lesson into a study in how the battles of wartime don't always cease with the ceasefire."
