"To know more, you’ll have to experience it for yourself. But then you do really need to see this marvellously conceived and sustained slice of life, which achieves an austere Beckettian affirmation of the fulfilment of keeping on, even in the most personally daunting of circumstances" Little White Lies - 5 Stars

In a remote Icelandic town, an off-duty police chief begins to suspect a local man of having had an affair with his late wife, who died in a tragic accident two years earlier. Gradually his obsession for finding out the truth accumulates and inevitably begins to endanger himself and his loved ones. A story of grief, revenge and unconditional love.
