§112 of the Constitution: “Every person has the right to an environment that is conducive to health and to a natural environment whose productivity and diversity are maintained. Natural resources shall be managed on the basis of comprehensive long-term considerations which will safeguard this right for future generations as well.” The film shows excerpts from Norway's first trial of §112 in the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court. Law professor Jørn Øyrehagen Sunde summed up the verdict as follows: "The paragraph is beautiful words on a piece of paper, but mostly without content".
