In this Norwegian-Finnish coproduction, we follow the daily fight for saving lives in a Nordic Field Hospital after a devastating 7,6 magnitude earthquake.

A team of top-notch Nordic aid workers – doctors, nurses, engineers, and admin professionals – are sent to set up and run a field hospital in rural Pakistan after the earthquake has turned the landscape into a disaster zone.

The field hospital is set up by the Finns and Norwegians and mobilized in 48 hours after the earthquake.
