Tore Remi managed to save his life by hiding in a toilet in the Café building along with five other people. He wants to share his story in order to emphasie the human aspect of terror and reach out to new generations:

In these films he tells his story about what happened, about the time afterwards, and what he hopes we can learn from 22 July.
