January 21st, 1968 – An American B-52 bomber carrying nuclear warheads has just crashed on the polar ice near the US Military Air Base in Danish controlled Thule, Greenland. A few days later, responsible governments classify the crash as a Broken Arrow scenario, but proclaims the situation as being under control. Hundreds of Thule workers are set to work, helping in the gigantic clean-up operation. After eight months, all traces of the crashed aircraft and the plutonium-contaminated snow are gone. The case is closed.18 years on, while covering a local workers compensation story, reporter Poul Brink suddenly runs into suspicious circumstances linking back to the 68’ nuclear accident cover-up. Apparently, the full and true story about the crash lays well-protected, deep under the Thule Bay’s ice cap and deep down the classified archives in the US.
