Atlantic Crossing

After a headlong flight from the Nazis, the Norwegian Crown Princess Märtha is forced to part from her husband and cross the Atlantic Ocean to seek refuge.

There, she finds herself involved in a close relationship with President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The Crown Princess evolves to become an invisible, yet notable person of power behind the scenes of Washington’s political life.

Inspired by true events, it is a story of awakening, transformation, liberation, and personal growth. A story of war and love.
