Thomas Hansen, known in his native Norway rather as St Thomas, was a revelation in the music scene. An unobtrusive boy who made his living as a postman, suddenly enthused not only folk fans with his deep lyrics and sincere performance. His fame skyrocketed, but the popularity and music business came to be equally frightening for the artist. Richard Knights' documentary is the very first one to map Hansen's career and his personal demons.
