A remote fishing village in Iceland.

Critics

“In all such tales of the growing self-awareness of youth, the quality of the playing from the young cast is crucial, and Guðmundsson has drawn hugely sensitive performances from his two leads. The landscapes that surround them may be monumental and memorable, but the sincerity and naturalness of these two performances is almost microscopically exact. ”
