What if you are suddenly on your own and anyone could be your enemy? 12-year-old Storm ends up in an adventure when his father Klaas accepts a new job. He secretly prints forbidden texts in his print shop. The safe life Storm knew, is turned upside down when Klaas gets caught in the act. Storm is able to flee just in time with the original letter and becomes the focus of a manhunt.

Storm: Letters van Vuur takes place against the background of the late Middle Ages, particularly the 16th century reformation, when freedom of speech was under threat in Europe. Thanks in part to the rise of the printing press, this led to a dangerous struggle for power and significant political, religious, economic and social changes.

Please note the the film is in Dutch with only Finnish subtitles.
