Loves comes from courage: a tender queer love story set against the backdrop of the Norwegian fjords. Robert is 19, comes from Poland and dreams of a fresh start in Norway. He gets a job in a fish factory and meets Ivar there. Their friendship seems to develop into something more. But while Ivar openly stands up for his sexuality, Robert fears the reactions of his Polish co-workers at the factory. When a strike is called led by Ivar, Robert has to nail his colours to the mast: is he going to go on hiding or will he stand by his friend?


LEIV IGOR DEVOLD (*1977 in Poland) studied at the National University of Film, TV and Theatre in Łódź and has made several award-winning documentaries. Produced in Hamburg, Norwegian Dream is his first feature film.
