A suspenseful Danish action-thriller about immigration, failed integration and police violence

Mike and Jens are cops on patrol in a poor immigrant neighbourhood, when the news that 19-year-old Talib has died in police custody is made public. As the council estate erupts in violent anger, the two policemen are trapped inside the labyrinthine concrete structures and their only way out is with the help of the young man they’ve just arrested. Mixing social realist depictions of police violence and failed integration with intense action and nerve-wracking suspense, SHORTA is an impressive thriller that captures the zeitgeist of 2020.
