Four young people want to change the world – then the world changes them.

In “Bravehearts” we follow four politically involved youths between the summer of 2009 and the fall of 2011. Four youngsters who have the courage to say what they really think of our society, who wish to make the world a better place.

Sana, Henrik, Haakon and Johanne represent four different political youth parties. They are in the process of preparing for the election campaign, with intense debate training. Sana is nervous before her first debate, Henrik is tired of having to defend himself against radical youths, Haakon is running for the local election, and Johanne is about to withdraw from the debate-team.

On July 21, Johanne boards the ferry to the AUF summer camp at the island of Utøya. The film crew is staying with her until the 22, then they return to Oslo to meet Sana. They are with Sana in the center of Oslo when the bomb goes off.

The documentary Bravehearts portrays the generation marked for life by July 22, 2011.

The film premiered in cinemas in Norway in August 2012, Sweden October, Iceland and Denmark March 2013. International festival premiere was IDFA 2012.
