Even though a world war is underway, glamorous Norwegian/Swedish star Sonja Wigert just wants “people to enjoy themselves.” However, as her friends around her point out, “war forces you to choose sides.” Still, the pampered and adored actress becomes a favorite of the Nazi officers occupying Norway. When Swedish intelligence agents try to recruit her as a spy, she's reluctant—until her father is arrested as part of the resistance. The undercover operation yields myriad questions in the form of tense situations. Is the charming Hungarian diplomat who speaks English and plays jazz piano at the secret after-hours club on Sonja’s side? When the high-ranking Nazi official that Sonja is also involved with demands that she spy on the Swedes for Germany, she begins losing herself in the many roles she has to play. The film is based on the life of the actual Sonja Wigert.—Dave Nuttycombe
