A princess steals the heart of the president of the United States in an epic drama based on the World War II relationship of Franklin Roosevelt and Norwegian Crown Princess Martha.
"Inspired by true events, this is the untold story of the Norwegian Crown Princess becoming an influential figure in world politics during World War II. 1940. Norway is occupied by Nazi Germany. Crown Princess Märtha and her children find shelter as political refugees in Franklin Roosevelt's White House. Her presence soon begins to influence Roosevelt's views on the tragic events unfolding in Europe and eventually changes the dynamics of U.S. politics. What starts as a friendship turns into affection and turmoil when Märtha speaks out publicly against the Nazi tyranny. In an attempt to fight for her country, she puts her marriage at risk and convinces FDR to support Norway--a first step in the struggle that will lead to the U.S. joining the war. However, Märtha's actions cause her to make many enemies; and some of them are even closer than she thinks--within the walls of the White House."-- Container.
