Movie synopsis: A naturalist and detached view of life in Reykjavik before the devastating economic crisis in 2008. Despite that, a young mother and kindergarten teacher, Eik, must earn some extra cash as a prostitute. She meets a shaggy alcoholic, Mori, who used to be a talented writer. And it is Mori whom a starting banker, Sovi, is trying to persuade to sell his house to a developer. Brimming with emotion, the story surprises with its purity and truthfulness. The muffled light of Iceland perfectly completes the gloomy mood of all the protagonists. The film became a box office hit in Iceland and local media even consider it the best Icelandic film of all time.
