Nine-year-old Sól has been misbehaving, so her parents send her to help relatives at a remote farm. What should have been a small lesson soon turns into a dramatic transition from childhood to adulthood. Sól discovers her own personality against the backdrop of the wild Icelandic nature, and Hjörleifsdóttir's debut is an intimate and poetic portrait of growing up; adapted from Guðbergur Bergsson's award-winning novel.
