No one would ever think about invading a country like Sweden in the past few decades. In fact, the last war that Sweden officially participated on their soil was back in World War I. Crazy Pictures’ director Victor Danell and Albin Pettersson changed the narrative in Unthinkable of a story that made the country a perfect target of a foreign invasion.
The film follows closely on a few survivors after mysterious explosions and mass confusion gripped the country. With unknown invaders dropping in, people began picking up the pieces that the world crumbling around them is a nefarious plot.
Here’s the official synopsis:
It’s midsummer and Sweden wakes up to a state of emergency. TV, Internet, and telephone networks are down, and before anyone realizes what’s behind the collapse, a series of unexplained attacks take place around the country. Alex, a successful pianist whose controlled existence is upturned when his mother dies in a suspected terror attack, returns to his childhood village to arrange the funeral. There, he must reconcile with both his father and his old flame, Anna, who he has desperately been trying to forget. As old feelings come back to the surface, more mysterious attacks plunge Sweden into chaos and confusion. The Unthinkable is a disaster-thriller about time running out, and protecting what matters most.
The film stars Christoffer Nordenrot, Lisa Henni, Jesper Barkselius, and Pia Halvorsen.
