Summer in a secluded fishing village will change the lives of all the local bored teenagers. Thor and Christian are best friends. One is tormented by his older sisters and the fact that girls perceive him as a little boy, the other is plagued by his constantly drunk father and by feelings which might or might not be reciprocated. A compassionate and confidently lively debut about friendship and growing up within the melancholic scenery of Iceland.
