The story is inspired by Cain and Abel and centres on a priest family in the Danish Church. In the lead roles are Lars Mikkelsen and Ann Eleonora Jørgensen as the parents, with Simon Sears and Morten Hee Andersen as their adult sons.
Series producer, Camilla Hammerich, says: “The series works with faith as a concept in a broader context of what leads us through life. Awakening (when faith looks for a place within us) and perdition (when faith leaves us) are the show’s dramatic extremes, and extremes that most of the main characters live through in their journey.”
Rides Upon The Storm will premiere on DR1 in autumn 2017 for its first ten episodes, and then return in autumn 2018 with a further ten episodes to conclude its run.
