Straight Forward is an eight-part family crime drama: an unexpected love story, as well as a tale of revenge, danger and redemption. It is a sexy, dangerous ride that jumps across the entire planet coming to a bloody end at the bottom of the world in one of its most spectacular settings. This series is a Danish/New Zealand co-production, which makes the most of the contrasts and opportunities that are offered by both locations – Queenstown; New Zealand’s stunning ‘adventure’ capital and Copenhagen; Denmark’s Nordic cosmopolitan pulse.
