All were present on that day on Utøya, and saw and heard their partners and friends being killed. Now they continue to fight for the values they are passionate about, on behalf of an entire generation of young people.
The politicians describe their own experiences of moving on after such a hateful, targeted attack. They reveal how the Labour Party today is marked by the loss of an entire generation of young politicians, both due to the fact that many were killed and that others were unable to deal with remaining in politics in the aftermath. The film is an important wake-up call and reminds us to always be mindful and never forget
