A Norwegian village, engulfed in everlasting darkness. In states of endless slumber, people endure the stifling dark. Powerful forces of nature rage relentlessly, sometimes soothing and sometimes menacing. The roar of the factory thunders on without halt, steadily eroding the surrounding landscape. Sluggish shapes seemingly abide the desolate waste around them. “These mountains, these waves and our people, carry the darkness, lies and slowness within. For he who can’t take no more only laughter can bring salvation.”
