One day in 1984, Ole Dammegard’s everyday life became too humdrum, so he prepared an old bicycle and started a trip into the vast unknown. His intention was to learn to live in the present. Initially he focussed on South Africa but unforeseen circumstances took him into wartorn Iran.
What happened here changed Ole’s life. His entire world, his viewpoints and values were turned upside down and the emotional turbulence he experienced tore down his inner walls leaving him naked and vulnerable like an open wound.
After a tragic murder, the situation became unbearable for one of his Iranian friends, so Ole ventured everything to help his friend get away and together they made a dramatic escape from Iran via former Soviet and East Germany in a desperate attempt to reach final freedom.”
