EN - It’s the summer of 1969 in the small coastal town of Stavanger, Northern Europe. International oil companies have been test drilling for years, but nothing has been found and they are in the process of leaving. Phillips Petroleum, however, are contracted to drill a final hole. Stavanger lives off fish, and the North Sea is emptying out. Something has to happen. The town is in crisis. The night before Christmas 1969, the gas flare at the Ocean Viking is lit. Phillips has found the largest sub sea oil basin in history. And everything is about to change.

NL - In de zomer van 1969 vinden de eerste testboringen plaats voor de kust van Stavanger, een stad die leeft van de visvangst. Wanneer aan de vooravond van Kerstmis in 1969 het grootste olieveld in de Noordzee wordt gevonden, verandert alles voor de kleine kuststad. We volgen vier hoofdpersonages die elk op hun manier een stuk van de maatschappij weerspiegelen en hoe die verandert door de ontdekking van olie.
