The magical world of Aurora

Aurora is a pop music sensation from a small town in Western Norway. She was discovered at the age of 16, dropped out of school, and spent the next few years touring the world with her first album. At the age of 20, she is at the breaking point of her career. Is this really what she wants, and if not, does she have any other option but to continue?

In Once Aurora, Aurora Aksnes opens the door to her magic world. The camera accompanies her during the tour, in the process of music creation and in complicated relations with her close collaborators. Once Aurora is an intimate portrait of an uncompromising artist, who changes and matures before the world's eyes while she tries to salvage her independent spirit and child-like sensitivity on the contemporary music market.
