Norwegian cowboys on mopeds, colored caravans and a large portion of absurd humor in Joern Utkilen’s allegorical feature film debut. In a small mining town out in the wilderness, the development has completely stopped since everyone has become too rich to work. One day a mysterious man enters the city and decides to play the citizens off against each other. Soon he has taken control of the small community, expelled the most demanding people and imported cheap labor to cope with a bar debt. The peaceful Cato, who inadvertently ends up in the battle line of the conflict, seems to be the city’s only chance of salvation. ’Lake Over Fire’ is a twisted western with political undertones about the world we live in today.
