Icelandic band Sigur Rós toured their homeland in the summer of 2006 in a series of unannounced, free concerts. The informal venues ranged from a community hall, a protest camp to outdoor sculptures. The film follows the tour, using often acoustic arrangements, with prolonged close-ups and intimate interviews rather than the stilted images of stadium rock, to get close to the band's nature and roots.

...I was utterly captivated...their creativity and open attitude was at one with Iceland's ravishingly beautiful landscape.
