 This biographical drama traces Max Manus' work for the Norwegian Resistance during World War II. A veteran of the Winter War, Manus returns home to find that Germans have occupied it. He receives special training in sabotage, which is the beginning of his collaboration with the British. He becomes part of the Oslo Gang, a highly successful resistance group, but the personal costs of war weigh heavily on him.
