ABOUT US

Prepare for an adventure in an unexpected place.

When Simon’s new roommate turns out to be the stunning and mysterious Anna, he embarks on a quest to woo her. To do so, he must seek the help of a notorious gangster. But at the start of the school year, he will have trouble even surviving his classes.

North follows a group of international students in the city of Groningen as they struggle against the half Irish, half Scottish mob boss McSeamus, all the while trying to survive university, make friends, and experience all that student life has to offer. There's laughter, there's tears, there's bad mustaches and Spanish lovers, there's three-leaved clovers and two-faced liars. But most of all, there's friendship and a shared international grudge against living in a city where no one can pronounce its name.

After a successful cinema and television run, the series is now available on DVD, and contains all six episodes of the series, Dutch and English subtitles, a 16-minute Making Of special, a gag reel, an easter egg, a music video, the official trailer and a two hour commentary track.
