After the Nazi surrender in May 1945, a unit of young Germans most barely out of their teens are put to work by their Allied captors. With minimal training, they are placed under the supervision of a righteous and embittered Danish sergeant, Rasmussen (played by the superb Roland Møller, A Hijacking), and sent to locate and disarm Hitlers munitions that still litter the beaches along Denmarks west coast. Scornful of the Germans for their five-year occupation of his country, the sergeant marches the boys out to the pristine dunes each day to perform this risky task. Yet as the days advance and he gets to know his young charges, especially the protective and pragmatic Sebastian (Louis Hofmann), Rasmussen grows more and more conflicted in his feelings, when compassion is the last thing his superiors wish to see extended.
