Christoffer Nordenrot has written an intriguing political thriller on a potential attack to Sweden from a foreign force (that has a face and a name at the end of the film – a very harsh and bold statement). Big action sequences and special effects to serve a story composed of personal and intimate tragedies that intertwine with the national catastrophe that is unraveling. An enormous narrative effort and a compelling visual rendition, further away from the Swedish films we are used to see.

Unthinkable: Alex is a successful artist whose controlled existence is disturbed when his mother dies in a suspected terror attack against Stockholm. For the first time in several years, Alex is forced to return to his childhood village to arrange the funeral. By accident Alex meets Anna, the youth love he has desperately been trying to forget. As old feelings are coming alive, more attempts around the country take place: Sweden is under an unknown attack. Will Alex succeed to reconcile with Anna before it’s too late?
