The End of Hardcore

Bård Torgersen

Einar grows up in a poor suburb to Oslo, and spends his time with his unstoppable friend Daniel, roaming around with an axe, breaking in to houses, running away from home. Determined to make a space for themselves in the world, they refuse to bow to anybody. But one day, Einar does something that sets in motion a chain of events that will change lives – and destroy them – forever.

Einar is part of the great countercultural underground that created great changes in the 1970s and 80s. But he is not one of those looking to make a career, to be admired, to stand out. He is one of those who want to destroy, turn Oslo on its head on the night before May 1, make the city his own. One of those who would rather attack than turn the other cheek.
