20200407A contemporary character lead thriller, with an international twist.

Birgitte is a young, successful and emotionally repressed Dane. Angie, in her 40s, has a string of failed business and is currently on bail for tax evasion. When Birgitte turns up out of the blue, begging her to fulfil their dying father’s last wish to meet Angie, there is little time to waste - they have to get to Copenhagen as soon as possible.

The only problem is, Angie doesn’t have a passport.

A dynamic new British/Danish co-production from Polly Thomas and Anders Lundorph, who also made The Exception - a highlight of Reading Europe 2017 on Radio 4:

"...tense, atmospheric and so refreshing to hear different accents and an alternative take on the dangers of our current world from a Danish perspective. Transnational radio here on Radio 4." The Spectator for The Exception, 2017

Recorded on location in Manchester, The Will stars leading Danish actress Charlotte Munck (Follow The Money, A War) and Danielle Henry, BBC Radio 4 regular. The drama definitely passes the Bechdel test – the female leads spend their time talking to each other, and not once is a boyfriend/husband/partner mentioned…..
