Description

Inspired by true events and set in the blooming 1960s, The Day Will Come centers around two young brothers who are instantly robbed of their lives when they are placed in a boy’s home forgotten by time. The year is 1967, and a blooming youth culture is on the rise. In a working-class neighborhood of Copenhagen, two inseparable brothers, Elmer and Erik, are taken from their ill mother and put in the Gudbjerg Home for Boys. Here, Headmaster Heck practices his own brand of philosophy and regulation, where unruly boys are transformed into obedient citizens at any cost.

As they struggle to adjust to their new home, the two boys begin to understand how much their freedom has been lost, and how much a daily struggle for survival has begun. As their attempts to stay under the radar are increasingly foiled, a simmering revolt slowly forms. Armed only with a vivid imagination and a fickle hope, the boys engage in the frightening battle against Headmaster Heck and his lethal tyranny.

Directed by Jesper W. Nielsen (Denmark, 2016).
