A Danish con woman, out to avenge her father’s death by a crime kingpin, is forced to flee Denmark for New Zealand, leaving her mother and daughter behind as targets. She must now find a way to save them from far, far away.
So goes the plot of Straight Forward, the first-ever Danish/Kiwi co-production, which dropped this morning on co-producer number three, Acorn TV.
The eight-episode thriller, in Danish and English, was filmed in both Copenhagen and Queenstown — “ bringing together New Zealand’s stunning scenery with Scandinavia’s reputation for crime-noir,” according to Television New Zealand.
Straight Forward stars Cecilie Stenspil as the the con woman and Mark Mitchinson as the crime boss.
