A Summer Paradise is SHATTERED !!!!

On one lovely bright summer day in Norway a horrific act took place that will forever be remembered in the minds and hearts of every Norwegian and can be related to by every decent human being on earth.

On July 22, 2011 A vicious and cruel beyond belief man set off a bomb in the heart of Oslo. He then raced to an idyllic island in the Oslo fjord where hundreds of young people were celebrating summer, life and friendship. There he used a high powered weapon and proceeded to systematically murder 69 innocent young people!

The horrific act of one individual is documented with EXCLUSIVE footage not just of the damage of his actions but with a balance and compassion for the victims and survivors. It is a documentary that shows the light in the darkest hour.

In the film you will meet many of those directly involved. The young people whose lives were lost and those whose lives will forever be changed. From those who survived we learn intimate details of the attack, their feelings, fears, efforts to escape and survive.
Of course we also feel their sadness and despair and conflicted emotions about why they survived and one so close to them, a friend did not.

There is a powerful and positive message in this film. Brought to all of us by the surviving youths of that island.

With their words and stories they tell us “ that hatred will be conquered with love.”
This is a message that must be shared by all and spread around the world.

Support us in that effort.
