Synopsis by Clare Perez-Izaguirre Lopez
Set in 1973, Lars Nystrom, (Ethan Hawke) robs a Stockholm Bank and takes several hostages including Bianca (Noomi Rapace) in order to use them as a bargaining chip for the release of his friend Gunnar (Mark Strong) from prison. As time goes on, Bianca finds herself drawn to Lars as he shows compassion for his hostages, an occurence leading to the psychological term ""Stockholm syndrome"" being coined. Written and directed by Robert Budreau.
