The Promised Land (2024) is set in 18th century Denmark, where Captain Ludvig Kahlen, portrayed by Mads Mikkelsen, emerges as a proud yet impoverished war hero. Determined to rise in status, Kahlen embarks on a daunting mission to cultivate a barren, vast land. His ambition is to transform this unwelcoming terrain into a thriving farm and establish a colony under the King's name, aspiring for a noble title. However, his endeavor falls under the jurisdiction of the ruthless nobleman, Frederik De Schinkel, who perceives Kahlen's aspirations as a direct threat to his dominance. Amidst battling the harsh elements and local outlaws, Kahlen's path crosses with a couple fleeing De Schinkel's oppressive rule. Together, they form a small community in this hostile environment. As their settlement begins to take root, De Schinkel, driven by a vow of revenge, sets the stage for an inevitable and fierce showdown with Kahlen.
