The year is 1974. The setting is 2021. Power Play is a never-before-seen drama about a crucial turning point in political history, told as if taking place in the modern world.

Oslo, 1974. When the Labour Party is torn apart by a disastrous feud between the Chairman and the Prime Minister, the young idealist Gro Harlem Brundtland is unwillingly pulled into the tactics and scheming of modern politics.
