«Corona russ»

Party buses worth hundred thousand kroner, blue and red overalls and hoodies with matching logos. The weeks from the end of April to May 17 are supposed to be the peak in many high school students lives. They were to party from from dusk to dawn, sing till their throats got soar and yell «fuck the police». Instead they have spent the time indoors on Skype, without any possibility to meet their friends, all caused by a pandemic. The last few weeks the Norwegian society has opened up more, though, and that has made it possible for «russen» to celebrate 13 years of school together. This series shows how «russen» have coped through the pandemic and how they haven’t been stopped from celebrating, one way or the other.
