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 Denmark’s history.
