Into The White
In the beginning of World War II, a dog fight above the remote Norwegian wilderness sees’ two aircrews having to ditch and fend for them selves. Both groups, the first being three Germans, and a day later two British find an isolated cabin that will provide shelter. With the German’s having the upper had, they manages to take the two British chaps prisoner easily.
What follows however is not easy.
Once the Germans had decided to keep the British boys alive – mainly because they would make good hostages, seeing as the Germans were in unfriendly territory, the British decided to inform the Germans of their rights under the Geneva Convention.
Tensions mount and anger flares.
But slowly things begin to change, a slow realisation that even though they we’re mortal enemies, and had only days ago been trying to kill each other, stuck together in a small hut with a blizzard blowing outside, they were in fact, first and foremost a bunch of human beings trying to survive.
Soon there attitude towards each other begins to thaw and they become friends over time.
Into The White is a wonderfully made drama that proves that even in our darkest times, the human spirit has the amazing capacity for love.
