Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Ireland 2017
With German air force and soldiers hunting after them, the Royal Family is forced to flee from the capital.
They decide to take separate ways, without knowing if they’ll ever see each other again.
The Crown Princess Märtha leaves Norway with the children to seek refuge in Sweden, whilst King Haakon
and Crown Prince Olav stay – to fight the Germans.
After three days of desperately trying to evade the Germans, King Haakon makes his final decision.
He refuses to capitulate, even if it may cost him, his family and many Norwegians their lives.
