When the Nazis invade her country, the Norwegian Crown Princess Martha (Sofia Helin) makes a narrow escape and seeks refuge in the United States. Soon, she develops a close relationship with President Franklin D. Roosevelt
(Kyle MacLachlan), which turns into deep affection. Martha
tries hard to convince him to help save her country and Europe from the
