22 July

Anders Behring Breivik is at his mother’s apartment finishing his manifesto on a computer; simultaneously the Prime Minister of Norway, Jens Stoltenberg of the Labour Party, is going over the details of a planned upcoming meeting with the children of the Workers’ Youth League (AUF) summer camp; and the children (all teenagers) have arrived on camp on the island of Utøya in Tyrifjorden, Buskerud. The camp was organized by the AUF, the youth division of the ruling Norwegian Labour Party. 22 July

Breivik dresses up in a police uniform, loads up a white van with home-made explosives and drives to the first attack in Oslo within Regjeringskvartalet, the Executive Government Quarter of Norway. The van is illegally parked in front of the building housing the office of Prime Minister Stoltenberg. A security guard watching on CCTV sees Breivik in his police uniform parking and leaving the van, the suspicious guard calls in the license plate to find out if the van belongs to law enforcement; when he is told that the van isn’t one of theirs, another guard goes outside to inspect the van — a second after he appears by the van, it explodes, blasting him away in flames and debris, and causing a ripple effect on the building and surrounding area. 22 July

At the island, people learn about the bombing. One of the students, Viljar Hanssen, calls his parents to check if they are hurt. 22 July

Breivik is in another car driving towards the island, he hears about the explosion on the car radio. When he arrives at the end point to get to the island, he tells the two personnel there that he was sent to secure the island because of the bombing in Oslo. They find him credible because of the situation and radios the director of the camp, who comes to transport him to the island on a boat. 22 July

On the island, Breivik tells a worker to gather all the children into one place, which they do. The head of security becomes suspicious and asks to see his ID. Breivik then shoots him and the director on the spot with a handgun and walks to where the children are, armed with his rifle. The children hear the shots and start fleeing and screaming as Breivik starts firing at them. 22 July

Groups of children are scattered around the island, but they are virtually trapped because the only way off the island is on boat. Breivik goes into one of the classrooms where some of the children are hiding and taunts the children before killing everyone in the room. Other children are scattered about the island trying to survive. A group of children, including Viljar and his brother Torje, hide on a rocky embankment on the beach. Viljar is able to get a cell signal and calls his mother to tell him that there’s a shooting on the island. 22 July

Chaos forms as first responders are trying to contain the bombing situation in Oslo, and word finally gets out about the second attack on the island. Breivik finds the group on the embankment and starts shooting. Viljar is shot multiple times and encourages his younger brother Torje to leave him and run. A tactical team is finally sent to the island where they encounter Breivik, who surrenders without incident. He is taken prisoner and brought back inland for interrogation. 22 July

It soon becomes clear that this was not an Islamist terrorist attack, but a far-right white nationalist terrorist attack. During his initial interrogation, Breivik claims he is part of a group called The Knight’s Templar and that more attacks will happen on his signal, but the agents quickly realizes that he acted alone. 22 July

In the aftermath of the attacks, the Prime Minister gives a quick speech to the Norwegian people and has an investigation opened in to the attacks. 77 people were killed, with hundreds injured. The Prime Minister is upset that Breivik was able to go undetected by the government when he was able to order so many things online to make the bomb; being told that the Norwegian government were just actively monitoring Muslims and not others, like white supremacists. 22 July

Breivik requests the legal aid of a lawyer named Geir Lippestad. When asked why Breivik chose him, he says that he remembers Lippestad when he defended a Nazi. Lippestad is morally conscientious of his client as well as being professionally bonded by his ethics as a lawyer.

Lippestad tries to argue an insanity defense for Breivik, which angers a lot of people because he will be institutionalized instead of imprisoned, but then Breivik tells Lippestad he wants to be declared competent to legitimize his attacks to further his white nationalist beliefs. 22 July

In three intersecting plotlines are Lippestad trying to reconcile with having to defend someone like Breivik and the disruptions to his family because of it; Viljar, who recovers from his injuries, suffers from PTSD and had to go through multiple surgeries and rigorous physical therapy, while he and his family try to move on with their lives; and Breivik’s trial. 22 July
