From teenage dreamers with empty wallets and one-way tickets from Norway to London, to international superstars with one of the most iconic and enduring pop songs ever to be recorded, a-ha’s sudden and meteoric rise to fame was extraordinary.

Forty years, ten studio albums and 55 million record sales later, the band still tour – but their connection is tenuous. They travel the world in separate cars and only meet on stage to perform.

Directors Thomas Robsahm & Aslaug Holm grant a candid insight into the ‘Take on Me’ hitmakers’ process, their astonishing live performance showmanship and their openly turbulent interrelationships off-stage.
