Atlantic Crossing

An affair changes history at the eve of WW II.

Inspired by true events, Atlantic Crossing is the incredible story of Norwegian crown princess Märtha, who fights to save her country – and her marriage – in a unique and never-before-seen perspective on the tragic events of World War II. Märtha is a heroine who rose from her obligations of a caring princess and loving mother to an influential figure in world politics, a popular icon who had a significant impact on President Roosevelt's decision to enter the war, which would ultimately lead to its end.
