A devastating reconstruction of the massacre of 69 young people by Anders Behring Breivik.

Through meticulous interviews with survivors, director Erik Poppe created composite characters for this drama. These include 18-year-old Kaja, whom the camera ceaselessly follows as she searches for her sister while attempting to hide from Breivik. This isn't easy viewing, but it's a lucid, critical reminder of the tremendous cost of mass tragedy, and a powerful memorial to its young survivors.

In Norwegian with English subtitles.

Running time: 1h57, including ads and trailers.
