In the late 1970's the punk wave under the flag of the Sex Pistols conquered the entire world, and Norway was no exception. The encounter with punk turns out to be a crucial moment in the life of young Nikolaj. Spiky coloured hair, drugs, punk music, safety pins and a rejection of the world around him - for Nikolaj these are not only symbols of his personal freedom, but also a way to deal with the tragic death of his mother. When his free-thinking father, Magnus, starts to worship punk as well, events take an entirely new turn. The tragicomic film Sons of Norway turns the cliche "troubled son-caring father" upside down, and takes a fresh look at the punk rebellion across generations.
