Swedish actor Martin Wallstrom, known for his role in the popular Swedish series Mr. Robert, is set to star in an American film called Ashes in the Snow.
The film is set during World War II and follows sixteen year old Lina, whose family is deported to Siberia. Wallström will play a friendly soldier who befriends the girl and her mother. The lead role is played by Bel Powley, who broke through last year in Diary of a Teenage Girl.
“Ashes in the Snow” is based on Ruta Septetts book Glimmers of Hope.
