Synopsis: In 1961, United Nations secretary-general Dag Hammarskjöld’s plane mysteriously crashed, killing Hammarskjöld and most of the crew. With the case still unsolved 50-plus years later, Danish journalist, filmmaker, and provocateur Mads Brügger and Swedish private investigator Göran Björkdahl, in their efforts to unerath the truth, discover a crime far worse than killing the Secretary-General of the United Nations.
