On a rainy October morning, fifteen Danes have their lives turned upside down when their metro train is hijacked by unknown perpetrators, who threaten to kill each of them, one by one, if their demands aren't met. This is the beginning of a historic hostage situation that, over the course of one single week, changes Denmark forever. The politicians argue whether or not to negotiate with terrorists. In the press, there are discussions on where the line is drawn in portraying the captives and seeking out their families. Ordinary Danes are left thinking that it could have been them. Among the hostages, the thoughts vary between rebellion, negotiation and apathy, but one thought is shared by all: "Am I going to die now?".
