In the days following the surrender of Germany in May 1945, a group of young German prisoners of war are handed over to the Danes and sent to the West Coast, where they are ordered to remove more than two million mines that the Germans had placed in the sand along the coast. The boys are forced to perform dangerous work under the leadership of a Danes sergeant, with their bare hands, crawling around in the sand.

Land of Mine (Danish: Under sandet, lit. 'Under the Sand') is a 2015 Danish-German historical drama war film directed by Martin Zandvliet. It was shown in the Platform section of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. It was selected and nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film category at the 89th Academy Awards.The film is inspired by real events and tells the story of German prisoners of war ordered to clear land mines in Denmark after World War II. It is estimated that over two thousand German soldiers, including numerous teenagers, under the command of German officers but against the Geneva Conventions, removed mines, nearly half of them being either killed or wounded. The removal was part of a controversial agreement between the German Commander General Georg Lindemann, the Danish Government and the British Armed Forces, under which German soldiers with experience in defusing mines would be in charge of clearing the mine fields.
