A new Danish Netflix series ‘Chosen’ is set to stream on January 27, 2022. Directed by Kaspar Munk and created by internationally acclaimed Christian Potalivo and Jannik Tai Mosholt (The Rain), the six-part series ‘Chosen’ is a suspenseful coming-of-age sci-fi story.
‘Chosen’ is about a young girl whose reality is suddenly turned upside down when everything she thought she knew turns out to be wrong, and she realizes that the world is not as safe and blissful as she thought. It is also a thrilling and absurd story about teenage life with social pressure, secrets, lies, and identity – all set in the outskirts of Denmark.
Emma has always felt different from anyone else in Middelbo – a small Danish town that became world-famous when it was said that a meteor entered the atmosphere and crashed into it 17 years earlier. Now, Middelbo is no longer what it has been, and the question is whether it has ever been what it pretends to be at all. When Emma accidentally discovers that the whole story of the meteor is a lie, a dangerous and improbable truth about the sleepy town reveals itself – something that is far more perilous and incredible than she could have ever imagined. Was it a meteor that hit the little town 17 years ago or was it something far more powerful? With this newly discovered realization, Emma is forced to realize that she is on her own and that friends and society will not save her in a time of life when she needs them the most.
