A story about a little brass band from the island of Vardø in North-eastern Norway and their adventurous trip to Murmansk in 1959.

Without any visas, exuberantly defying bureaucracy and the cold war, Vardø Town Band set off in a fishing boat to visit their Soviet neighbours. It became a trip they never would forget, and it would have major consequences.
