In 1997, a man was convicted for having sex with an underage boy. Two months before his sixteenth birthday, the boy in question had responded to an advert the man had placed in the personals. The boy was exactly 56 days too young. According to Norwegian law, sex is legal from the age of sixteen. As the film’s director, Jacobsen, comments: “The details of what happened were probably nothing to be particularly proud of, but what amazes me is the way this case made so many people scream blue murder.”
