A retrospective, coming of age documentary about a group of train robbing kids from Norway in the 90s. In the mid 90s a group of young friends aged 11-15 stole an enormous amount of beer and soda from freight trains in Trondheim, Norway. Train Robbers is a nostalgic, funny, serious, warm, sad and poetic coming of age documentary about kids that didn’t fit in at school or the football team. This could have been a film about adult men with drug addiction, prison sentences and split families. But it is not. This is a story about the children that had the future ahead of themselves, but society let down.
