The 10-part, English-language series will follow a group of young people who are forced to make an emergency landing outside of their home country and, for the first time, are confronted with the true face of their nation.

Kelvin’s Book” is an extraordinarily rich, gripping and ambitious story. With contemporary themes and a reflection of the digital age that we live in, there’s no better time for this project.”
