How far would you go to protect the ones you love? That’s the question Danish psychological thriller WALTER PRESENTS: DELIVER US (Fred til lands) poses as it centres on a group in a local community who are being terrorised and decide to take matters into their own hands.
On the surface, this provincial town looks like most other small towns. But other towns don’t have citizens like Mike. A young man that terrorizes his neighbours – in the beginning it’s bearable, but over time his behaviour becomes more and more dangerous until the point where he has seemingly killed an innocent boy and gotten away with it. A group of citizens from the neighbourhood finally decide that they have had enough. These people each live very different lives but have one thing in common; Mike is ruining their lives. So they decide to try to carry out the perfect murder that can dispel the evilness and take them back to a better time. But when you start to play God, you might just end up becoming the devil…
