An intense psychological thriller set in a gated eco-farm, in lush yet suspicious surroundings, accompanied by the moving music soundtrack ‘The Partisan’ by Leonard Cohen.
Partisan takes place in the idyllic surroundings of Jordnära, a gated community that runs a very successful organic farm that distributes vegetables. The story starts off with Johnny (played by Fares Fares) entering Jordnära with the assignment of being their new truck driver at the farm. Johnny gets to know Nicole and Maria, who are spending their summer in the gated community as foster kids. Johnny soon starts to suspect trafficking. The more Johnny’s concern for the girls grows, the more focus they take from his main mission. Who is Johnny and what is his true agenda?
