It’s 1975 in a small valley in Norway. A young girl is committing herself to a psychiatric ward. On the bus traveling to the hospital she’s the only passenger, and meets the bus driver who has just seen the movie “One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest”. She is experiencing the worst bus ride ever.

Bjørn Sortland
Director Statement: Brief summary of my life before and now:

I was born in Bergen in 1968. I grew up on Sortland on Bømlo, an island municipality south of Hordaland (Sortland has now changed its name to Svortland, something I have never rejoiced very much over). In 1990-91 I went to the Academy of Writing in Hordaland, and the following year I made my debut with my first book, Det er icke natta, Samlaget 1992.
Since that time, I have only continued to write. It may be short-term, but I think it is important to go really hard, and then increase the effort after a quarter.

I have written books in various genres for children, young people and adults. My books have been published in the USA, Canada, Italy, France, Spain (in Spanish, Catalan and Basque), the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, Bulgaria, South Korea, Taiwan, Sweden, Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Finland, Lithuania, Egypt and Palestine.

I otherwise love fresh cod with almond mashed potatoes and a just right expensive Italian wine.
