In 1961, United Nations secretary-general Dag Hammarskjöld’s plane mysteriously crashed, leaving no known survivors. It is widely understood that because Hammarskjöld was advocating for Congo’s independence, against the wishes of European mining companies and other powerful entities, the "crash" was an assassination. With the case still unsolved 50-plus years later, Danish journalist, filmmaker and provocateur Mads Brügger leads an investigation to unearth the truth. Brügger, his Swedish private-investigator sidekick Göran Björkdahl and a host of co-conspirators tirelessly pursue a winding trail of clues, but they turn up more mysteries than revelations. Scores of false starts, dead ends and elusive interviews later, they begin to sniff out something more monumental than anything they had initially imagined.
