In the mid-1700s, Danish King Frederik V declared that the wild heath of Jutland should be tamed, cultivated, and colonized so that civilization could spread and new taxes be generated for the royal house. However, no one dared to follow the King’s decree. The heath meant certain death – a godforsaken place haunted by unforgiving nature. But in the late summer of 1755, a lone soldier by the name of Ludvig von Kahlen (Mads Mikkelsen) rode into the heath in a stubborn pursuit of a lifelong dream, determined to obtain the wealth and honor he had long sought, or lose everything.
