    • Synopsis
    • In September 1961 the aircraft carrying UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjöld exploded into the African jungle, killing everyone on board. In 2015, the UN reopened its inquiry into the crash, citing evidence that the plane was shot down by a Western intelligence service. Who was Dag, and why did four ruthless superpowers want to him dead before he could negotiate a vital peace deal? This timely biopic explores nativism, inequality, and how to resist them, through one the greatest leaders of the the 20th century.
