Last Year was a Long Night

In Last Year Was a Long Night we follow the wanderings
of a nameless protagonist through Oslo’s underworld, a realm where alcohol, drugs, tall tales, superficial acquaintances, dirty money, one night stands, fights and tragic destinies throng together, staggering from bar to bar through the wintry night. And like a dark shadow hanging over it all: a dead father, an unusual childhood
and a crippled romance.
