The childhood dream that became a nightmare.
- Since nothing can keep us together, nothing can keep us apart.
Three men in their mid-fifties are on tour again. They have fans of all ages and sell out big arenas around the world. They travel in black Mercedes, each their own, stay in luxury hotels and have separate wardrobes each night behind the scenes. The only time they are together is on stage. We follow Morten Harket, Magne Furuholmen and Pål Waaktaar closely with our observational cameras. Our mission is to find out why the three childhood friends have ended up being so cold to each other. Something is rotten, but what is it?
