Finally, the hard work is rewarded and the gold dust in the brass school grows into gold chunks, Adam sets out to take his gold treasure to the nearest city.
When thirty spiritual Nazi destruction patrols led by SS Obersturmführer Bruno Helldorf (Paul Anderson) rumble against Adam, a breathtaking and golden-hungry chase begins through the destroyed and mined Lapland wilderness.
