Next week SBS on Demand will premiere Danish heist drama Pros and Cons.
This is a 2018 title which debuted internationally a year ago.
All ten episodes available to stream. In Danish with English subtitles.
When they were young and in love, Nina (Lena Maria Christensen) and Erik (Lars Ranthe) lived adrenaline-fueled lives as con artists. Together with their partner in crime, Jacqueline, they could cheat anybody out of anything. But when Nina became pregnant, the young couple withdrew from their criminal life and left Jacqueline behind. Wanting to live a normal life, they settled down in the suburbs of Copenhagen.
Erik and Nina now lead regular lives as law-abiding citizens with their teenage daughter and young son. Their creative and exciting scams have been replaced by parent-teacher meetings, packed lunches, and mortgages.
Nina and Erik’s marriage has been reduced to practicalities, and the excitement and passion of their youth are long gone. Nina has moved on from their past adventures. She is ambitious in all aspects of life and thrives in her job. Erik, on the other hand, has not moved on. He never managed to keep a job, and the family depends on Nina’s salary.
In the midst of their marital crisis, Jacqueline reappears and changes everything. With threats of revealing their past identity, she talks Nina and Erik into a grand con. The couple now must navigate two very different lives as con artists and suburban parents in a deadlock. As their plan starts to unfold, they find that old habits die hard, and as the stakes rise, so do they. Pros and Cons is a SBS On Demand exclusive.
Thursday, 31 October 2019 on SBS On Demand.
