The Good Traitor

Inspired by actual events, The Good Traitor is the thrilling story of one man’s impassioned resistance to the Nazis. In 1939, Henrik Kauffmann is serving his post in Washington as the Danish Ambassador to the United States. When German troops invade and occupy Denmark, Kauffmann declares himself to be the only true representative of a free Denmark in opposition to the Nazis. In the face of growing threats and accusations of high treason, Kauffmann attempts to gain the trust of US President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Kauffmann must gamble his legacy, his family and the trust of his nation, to resist the Nazi occupation.
