There were two incidents that shattered Norway on the same day in 2011. A right-wing extremist, Anders Breivik, carried out a bomb attack in the government district in Oslo and then opened fire to the participants of the camp organised by the youth wing of the Norwegian Labour Party in the island of Utøya. In total, he killed 77 persons. Four young protagonists of this story survived the attack at the island, but despite their traumatic experiences, they do not lose faith in the sense of activism and decide to get more involved in work for the benefit of society.
