Countrymen follows a group of young men from inner city Oslo, who move to a farm in picturesque Telemark. While pretending to be driven by a shared interest for agriculture, their real intention is something entirely different.

One thing leads to another, and against their will the guys from Oslo end up as founders of Norway’s first halal cheese making business.

Countrymen is a story about community and belonging, and about finding meaning in your life where you least expect it.
