Plot & Details
Written and directed by Bradley Rust Gray, and produced by his partner, So Yong Kim, Salt takes place entirely in Iceland and tells the story of a young woman, Svava (Melkorka Huldudottir) employed in a fish factory and emotionally attached to her boyfriend, Aggi (David Orn Halldórsson). When Svava moves alone to Reykjavik, it isn't long before Aggi decides to join her and plans a road trip. Svava's open-faced and sweet-natured younger sister, Hildur, expresses interest in tagging along with Aggi - alone in the car; he agrees. She soon finds herself falling deeply in love with the older man. When the car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, and the two are forced to share a small tent, romantic complications inevitably result.
