Seventeen-year-old Nói drifts throught life on a remote fjord in the north of Ireland. In winter, the fjord is cut off from the outside world. The fjord is surrounded by ominous mountains and covered under a shroud of snow. Nói dreams of escaping from his white-walled prison with Iris, a city girl who works in a local gas station. Unfortunately, his clumsy attempts at escape spiral out of control and end in complete failure. Only a natural disaster will offer him a better world.
Consensus: A darkly humorous, quirky coming-of-age film, enhanced by its Icelandic setting.
