The true story about one of the most brilliant saboteurs during World War II and his battle to overcome his inner demons. "Max Manus" follows the exploits of the title character from the outbreak of World War II until the summer of peace in 1945. After fighting against the Russians during the Winter War in Finland, Max returns to a Norway occupied by the Germans.
