Ride Upon The Storm

DRAMA SERIES / SEASONS I & II / 20 X 1 HOUR

BAFTA-winning Adam Price (Borgen) turns his attention to how faith and religion affect our lives in this modern, character-led drama produced by Camilla Hammerich (Borgen) and starring Lars Mikkelsen (House of Cards).

 

The story centres on a family of priests that traces its roots back more than 250 years: Johannes (Mikkelsen), Elisabeth (Ann Eleonora Jorgensen), and their sons, August (Morten Hee Andersen) and Christian (Simon Sears). Johannes is God-like to his sons – he gives, loves, and punishes. His favouritism for August and his disappointment with Christian forces both into making desperate choices in order to either gain his love or break free from him.  Their path will lead us into war and encounters between different religions, seen through the intimate lens of a family drama.

 

RIDE UPON THE STORM explores good and evil and the spiritual journey towards seeking a greater meaning in life – because we all want to believe in something when a storm is approaching.
