State of Happiness II

Synopsis

STATE OF HAPPINESS is a TV drama series that tells the story of Western prosperity, a changing nation, a Klondike town, and four young people who are thrown into a whirlwind of opportunites. Everything is moving, everything is new, it´s a great, big, at times scary, unknown. How are they all going to deal with it?

The second season of STATE OF HAPPINESS stretches from 1977 to 1980. The era of great disasters. Well 14 at Ekofisk Bravo is blowing out and a massive oil sheet creeps over the ocean, heading for the Klondike fishing bank. ”Environment Politics” is put on the agenda for the first time. ”Safety” is to follow, when in 1980 the hotel platform Aleksander Kielland capsizes and 123 people die, trapped inside. This is also the time when people start to make money, and as we shall see, some more than they can handle.

A story about how people deal with opportunities and change, both on a political and personal level – set in the first years of the oil boom in western Norway.
