The Black Pimpernel is based on a true story and real events during the military coup in Chile September 11th 1973. We follow the Swedish Ambassador, Harald Edelstam, and his heroic action to save the lives of innocent people from the brutal regime that took over power after the elected president Allende. This is a story about a remarkable man personally saving more than 1300 people within a period of less than three months in Santiago. He fought the regime as a one-man army, became an inspiration for other embassies and was of course expelled in December 1973. However this is a story about civil courage and about making a difference as a human being in a crises situation. It’s also a story about a man fighting his own demons to redeem himself and allowing him to love a woman again. Something he managed to do in Santiago 1973.
