One day, Elin Hammar has an unexpected visitor at the restaurant where she works: Sweden’s Minister of Justice, who wants to give her back her job as his chief of staff at Sweden’s Ministry of Justice, which she left under unfortunate circumstances.
When she accepts, she has no idea that she will shortly be at the centre of a political conspiracy revolving around her predecessor’s mysterious disappearance in a game motivated by greed and lust for power in Blue Eyes, a political thriller currently shooting in Gothenburg for a ten-part drama series.
Blue Eyes is a political drama thriller about xenophobia and the growing forces behind intolerance and racism. Ten weeks prior to the election to parliament, Annika, a local politician of the Swedish Democrats (a far right wing party), is murdered on her way home from a town square meeting. This becomes the starting signal for an election campaign that Sweden has never before seen. Whilst the government and the Swedish Democrats wage a media war over who can win the most political points on the murder, a very different battle is hitting the streets. The terrorist cell Veritas, a faction from the militant national socialist movement, has decided to put words into action and throws Sweden into a national crisis. At the same time Annika’s two children, Simon (19) and Sofia (24) are caught between the different forces that want to exploit them. As Simons grief makes him more paralysed and dependant on his sister, Sofia’s hurt over the loss of their mother makes her seek answers and she radicalizes, blaming the immigrants for her mothers murder. In this search for scapegoats she comes in contact with the terrorist cell Veritas and the two siblings are pulled into actions they can never do undone as Veritas attacks culminate with a spectacular bombing of the Stockholm Stock Exchange.During the last tremulous weeks before the election, we see how the thirst for power, ambition and self-regard can overshadow everything. We will encounter people who have been ignored, who turned to hate and delirious violence, but also whose love and loyalty prevail in the face of adversity.
