Idealist, The

January 21st, 1968 – An American B-52 bomber carrying nuclear warheads has just crashed on the polar ice near the US military Air Base in Danish controlled Thule, Greenland. A few days later, responsible governments classify the crash as a Broken Arrow scenario (nuclear accident) but proclaim the situation to be under control. Hundreds of Thule workers are set to work, helping in the gigantic clean-up operation. After eight months, all traces of the crashed aircraft and the plutonium-contaminated snow are gone. The case is closed. 18 years on, while covering a local workers compensation story, reporter Poul Brink suddenly runs into suspicious circumstance linking back to the concealed ‘68 nuclear accident. Apparently, the full and true story about the crash lays well-protected deep under the Thule Bay’s ice cap and deep down in the classified archives in the US.

Based on true events. Second feature film by director Christina Rosendahl.
