Synopsis

After three years at the front Esben flees the trenches of WWI to return to his beloved wife Kirstine and son Karl. But home is not what it used to be. The charming German officer, Gerhard, has done everything he can to win Kirstine's heart and take on the role as Karl’s father.

While the family tries to adjust to the new situation, with the father and husband back from the front although in hiding, the bonds of love and loyalty are stretched to the breaking point. Inevitably Esben is forced to watch his family slowly slip away before his eyes and decides to do whatever it takes to get his wife and son back. But how far can a man possibly go in the name of love? A WAR WITHIN is a suspenseful and deeply moving drama offering a wide canvas of difficult choices men and women have to make in war times.
