Erna at war
Tuesday 25 January, 18:00
Anything and everything she will do to protect her son. This is the story of Erna, a woman of extraordinary strength.
With the First World War intensifying, the German Empire suffers from a lack of soldiers. In 1918, the Empire resorts to conscripting men from occupied Denmark, and Erna's son, Kalle, is also called into battle. Fearing for the safety of intellectually disabled Kalle, Erna decides to protect him by his side and joins the military disguised as a male soldier. Witnessing the cruelty of war first-hand at the forefront, Erna and Kalle both start to undergo profound changes. Trine Dyrholm, one of the leading Danish actresses, embodies the love of a strong mother.
