In 2020, the International Ibsen Festival turns 30. To mark the occasion, filmmaker Emilie Beck has created this documentary, which tells the story of how the International Ibsen Festival was created, and what the festival has meant for Norwegian and international theatre.

In addition, theatre directors and actors open up and share stories from backstage - why did Wenche Foss stand up and leave in the middle of a performance of John Gabriel Borkman?
