Straight Forward follows a Danish woman’s attempts to leave her criminal past behind to start a new life. It’s a tale of revenge, danger and redemption – but it’s also an unexpected love story.
When fraudster Silvia Petersen’s (Cecilie Stenspil) world is torn apart by a family murder, she decides to seek revenge. In doing so, she provokes the rage and retaliation of one of the most dangerous criminals in Denmark. Her only way out is to flee to the other side of the world.
Landing in Queenstown under the alias Robyn Ford, Silvia wants to shake off her past, but she’s put the lives of her mother and daughter in mortal danger back in Denmark. Silvia will have to use her skill and resourcefulness to pull off the scam of her life, save herself and her family – and get away with it.
Created by award-winning writer John Banas (Resolve, Dear Murderer), Straight Forward is an ambitious eight-part global co-production that promises viewers their own Nordic-noir packed with thrills and twisted with home-grown flavour.
The series also stars New Zealander Mark Mitchinson (The Monster of Mangatiti, Rake, Filthy Rich), Vibeke Hastrup and Marie Boda.
