Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

In the true history this movie is based on, a group of Danish private-school boys got together during World War II and formed their own Resistance cell, which went under the name of "the Churchill Club." They operated in the provincial city of Aalborg and fought the German Nazis wherever and whenever they could, inspiring their elders to begin doing the same. In this movie, a group of privileged boys have gathered together to play pranks on the pompous occupiers, but they are soon joined by a more enterprising lower-class boy, who steals weapons from the Germans. At that point, the boys become more serious about their sabotaging activities. At the same time, they are just getting their feet wet romantically, and their curiosity about the world around them is very evident.
