Streaming service Walter Presents has acquired the UK rights to When The Dust Settles (Når Støvet Har Lagt Sig), the hit Danish drama about eight strangers whose lives intertwine in the aftermath of a shocking terrorist attack.
It’s a busy Friday night at a newly opened restaurant in Copenhagen. Guests are eating, drinking and enjoying a carefree night out when two masked men with weapons enter the premises. Shots are fired. And just like that, life will never be the same.
During the days before and after the attack, the stories of eight very different characters intertwine, it becomes apparent that they are connected in quite unexpected ways and find themselves questioning the life choices that they have made.
Written by Dorte Høgh & Ida Maria Rydén (Dicte), When The Dust Settles was nominated for the Nordisk Film & TV Fond Screenplay Award and welcomed by a 42% share of the domestic audience when it premiered in Denmark this February.
