SABOTEUR RUN

In 1943, a team of Norwegian  resistance fighters took on the might of the occupying German forces and completed one of the most successful sabotage operations of the Second World War.

 

Recreating the 250 mile escape route into Sweden, unsupported, taken by these heroes, Rob explores the concept of bravery then and now whilst coming face to face with injury and the vital choice that can define any moment...give up or carry on any way possible. SABOTEUR RUN is available to watch on Amazon Prime
