Story


This conspiracy thriller is set in the early 80's, the beginning of the Norwegian Oil Boom. Enormous oil and gas deposits are discovered in the North Sea and the authorities aim to bring the oil ashore through a pipeline from depths of 500 meters. A professional diver, Petter, obsessed with reaching the bottom of the Norwegian Sea has the discipline, strength and courage to take on the world's most dangerous mission. But a sudden, tragic accident changes everything. Petter is sent on a perilous journey where he loses sight of who's pulling the strings. Gradually he realizes that he is in way over his head and that his life is at stake.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..as far as conspiracy thrillers go, "Pioneer" is as paranoid as they come..”
by Kenneth Turan [LA Times]
“..'Pioneer' delivers insidious, shadowy tension, while it's genuinely surprising to find yourself so engrossed - story glitches notwithstanding - in key issues like compression sickness and divers' gas supply..”
by Trevor Johnston [Time Out London]
