It’s the summer of 1969 in the small coastal town of Stavanger. International oil companies have been test drilling for years, but nothing has been found and they are in the process of leaving. Phillips Petroleum, however, are contracted to drill a final hole.

Stavanger lives off fish, and the North Sea is emptying out so the town is in crisis. But on Christmas Eve 1969, the gas flare at the Ocean Viking is lit. Phillips has found the largest sub sea oil basin in history. And everything is about to change.

The series follows the stories of four young people who create their future in a country that, in a matter of a few years, changes from being a small fishing nation and European outpost, to becoming a leading oil nation.
