    • Pioneer (Norwegian title: Pionér) takes us back to the start of the Norwegian oil adventure. Professional diver Petter is obsessed about reaching the bottom of the North Sea. Along with his brother Knut, he has the discipline, strength and daring necessary for the world’s most dangerous mission. A test dive to below 500 meters is compared to Norway’s moon landing, to convince skeptics that laying a pipeline to the mainland is possible. Then a tragic accident changes everything. The closer Petter comes truth, the more it dawns on him that his own life is in danger ...
