On 22 July 2011, more than 500 youths at a political summer camp on an island outside Oslo were attacked by an armed, right-wing extremist. Earlier that day he bombed a Government building in Oslo before making his way to Utøya island. In the film, we meet 18 year old Kaja 12 minutes before the first shot is fired. We then follow her as she tries to survive – minute by minute.

German sales agent Global Screen also received distribution support for the film through Creative Europe’s Sales Agents scheme in 2017.
