The film is the first fictional approach to the political terrorist attack that took place on 22 July 2011, when an armed, right-wing extremist opened fire on 500 youths at a political summer camp on the island of Utøya, outside Oslo. Following 18-year-old Kaja, the story, which is based on survivors’ testimonies, depicts all the events of that day.

. The film follows young Lindgren (Alba August) and the events that shaped her personality – especially a near-miraculous event that affected her profoundly. The movie also follows the obstacles that Lindgren had to overcome to become a storyteller and depicts society’s religious and conservative norms that she had to break to follow her destiny.
