Starring Stellan Skarsgård (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), this true story of the infamous Bastøy Boys Home correctional facility in Norway, begins with the arrival of seventeen-year-old Erling, a rumored murderer. He immediately clashes with the island facility's governor who believes manual labor, rigid discipline, and harsh punishment are the only methods that can turn the boys into honorable members of society.  When tragedy finally falls at the hand of the sadistic dorm master, Erling leads his comrades in a courageous and vicious rebellion that will bring them head to head with no less than the Norwegian Army.
