In 1961, United Nations Secretary General Dag Hammarskjöld’s plane mysteriously crashed in Zambia. With the case still unsolved, Danish journalist, filmmaker and provocateur Mads Brügger leads us down an investigative rabbit hole to unearth the truth. Scores of false starts, dead ends, and elusive interviews later, Brugger begins to uncover something more monumental than anything they’d initially imagined. With a hint of irony and a taste for the absurd, Brugger casts himself as both filmmaker and subject, challenging the very nature of truth by ‘performing’ the role of the truth seeker.
