Promised Land, The


Synopsis

In 1755, the impoverished Captain Ludvig Kahlen sets out to conquer the harsh, uninhabitable Danish heath with a seemingly impossible goal: to build a colony in the name of the King, in exchange for a royal title. The heath meant certain death – a godforsaken place haunted by ravenous wolves, highwaymen, and a brutal and unforgiving nature. The sole ruler of the area, the merciless Frederik de Schinkel, believes this land belongs to him and does everything in his power to drive the captain away.
