Young and Promising

In the heart of Oslo, three girls are all trying their best to break into their careers and into adulthood.

As they keep trying but often fail, they all long for a different reality where they become who they want to be – someone they would follow on Twitter but would never dare to add on Facebook.

Life in Oslo offers commitments, anxiety, self-sabotage, sex, love, and an undying ambition for something more than just a “normal” life.

Elise, Nenne and Alex all are about to realize that everyone, including their parents, have no idea what they are doing with their lives.
