Hi Adrian. It's Viktor.

Do you remember the

cave we talked about?

I've done some research and

there seems to be an opportunity.

Might be cool, right?

You, me and Charlie going on an

adventure, just like the old days.

Call me and we'll talk about it.

- Have you been waiting long?

- Just for an hour.


- Fresh air is doing me good.

- Yeah I guess so.


Great initiative.

I'm super hyped.

Me too.

- You seem a bit nervous.

- You think so?

You're so quiet.

I'll be right back.

You look well.

You think so?


It's been a while.

Yes, it has.

It's been over a year, I think.

At Oslo Marathon.

You were standing there

with some people-

eating an ice cream with

tutti frutti confection on top.

Look at this.

What on earth!

It's been a while since you

had that on your head.

My hair has grown.

Your stomach too, right?

Stop it!

I can take that one.

We've got plenty of space.

- I'll take that. No problem.

- Okay.

Should we just follow you then?

Well, if you can keep up.

I'll manage that.

The last man to arrive will

do the dishes, okay?

You bet!

That went well?

Everything's under control.

I meant Viktor.


It went just fine.

What do you mean?

It seems like he's

in a better place.

Getting outside will do

him good, don't you think?


Get over here.

Get over here.

- We start out in this area, right?

- Yes.

Then we'll just float along

the river down here.

You can see how the river

runs into the mountain.

And if the current runs this way, the

exit should be approximately here.

The exit isn't indicated on any

of the maps I've looked at.

Which is why I'm

saying 'approx'.

Isn't that part of the point here?

To find that exit.

That's half the point.

Yeah, but it's not clear whether

we will find that exit or not.

We can't take it too lightly.

- None of us is doing that.

- You just make it sound so simple.

- Okay, I'm sorry.

- People have died there before.

- Well, yeah, that's true...

- Those Belgians?

You might find that

funny, but it's a fact.

Those were amateurs.

That's my point.

They had no cave

diving experience.

While we're in a

different league.

And we can diffuse bombs.

That might be handy.

Did you speak with your father?

Yeah, he'll pick us up.

I was just thinking-

- that-

we'll dive until we have

30 percent oxygen left, right?

Then we'll return the same way

if we haven't found the exit.

I reckon we should bring an

extra oxygen tank. You agree?

A safety tank?

Yeah, why not?


Are you nervous?

- You aren't nervous?

- No, I'm ready as hell.

That's good.

If you are nervous, then

I'll become nervous.

Yeah, I can tell.

Did you fix that valve?

Yeah, it was just a bit wobbly.

That's nice.

You're good.

I don't think that's a good idea.

Forget about him.

Let's have a drag then.

Do you remember this song?


We had a nice time together, right?


Do you often think about Afghanistan?


Not really.

I remember you didn't sleep that well.

A lot happened at the same time.

That school bus.

We're thinking about having children.


- we're trying.


- Have you started smoking again?

- No, that's his thing.

It's getting colder outside.

We need more wool tomorrow.


All good?


I'm going to bed.

Don't stay up too late.

I'm coming.

Calm down!



You thought it was poop, right?

You're a sick man.

Did you know that?

You're still strong as hell.

Should we get some breakfast?

I need to clean up a bit.

Should we go for a swim?

Yeah, if you dare.

I'll go first!


Did you guys see that?
