Frida Kempff will direct The Swedish Torpedo, a new period drama inspired by the life of Sally Bauer, the first Scandinavian to swim across the English Channel.
The story is set in 1939, a time when Europe is on the brink of war. Sally, a 30-year-old single mum, dreams of being the first Scandinavian woman to cross the English Channel. While both society and her family urge her to follow her duties as a mother, she breaks conventions to pursue her dreams. The cast is toplined by Josefin Neldén (Border, 438 Days), Mikkel Boe Følsgaard (A Royal Affair, Borgen) and Lisa Carlehed (The Emigrants).
The project will commence filming in August in Sweden, Estonia, Belgium and in the UK.
