Operation Napoleon

Óskar Þór Axelsson

Due to global warming the wreckage of a German WWII airplane surfaces from under the ice on Vatnajökull glacier in Iceland. This is a crucial moment the American Secret Service has been waiting for since the plane crashed in 1945. The Americans are immediately put on alert and they send a delegation to handle this matter. When Kristín, an attorney with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, loses contact with her younger brother while he is driving a skidoo on top of the glacier with his friend, she is inadvertently drawn into an international conspiracy.
