Desperado

"Sense and Sensibility", NRK
Bjarte Berntsen loves driving motorbikes. Fast, way too fast. Long ago Bjarte has been banned from driving forever, but he simply does not care. He is aggressive, a desperado, feared and hated for his ruthless driving. Yet, one man supports him: a well-respected high school teacher, local politician - and his father.

"Sense and Sensibility" (NRK) takes us along Bjarte's long path from ADHD diagnosis to extreme sports, drug abuse and to ending up as a modern outlaw. It lets us look deep down into a troubled mind on the brink of psychosis, to a point where justice and psychiatry are helpless. The story is thrilling, full of almost physical aggression, leaving its listener restless and perplexed.
