The mother of young children, Rakel Øyerhamn, lost her husband Harald in the Alexander L. Kielland disaster. She and other survivors and bereaved individuals recount the situation one year after the tragedy. Rumors circulate about “the wealthy Kielland widows” who have received million-dollar compensations. Everyday life appears somewhat different for those affected. Survivors who are unable to return to work in the North Sea face financial issues on top of their traumas. Meanwhile, there’s a raging debate about the fate of the wrecked platform that still remains partially submerged in Gandsfjorden.
