This true story of the infamous Bastøy Boys Home correctional facility in Norway, begins with the arrival of seventeen-year-old Erling. He immediately clashes with the island facility’s governor (Skarsgård), who believes rigid discipline and harsh punishment is the way to turn the boys into honourable members of society. Erling slowly rouses the rest of the boys out of their resigned existence, and encourages them to fight to lift up their spirits. When a tragedy occurs, Erling leads his comrades in a courageous and vicious rebellion that will bring them head to head with the Norwegian Army.
