Plot Summary
In this Icelandic drama, the family of Thordur (Gunnar Eyjolfsson), the wealthy owner of a fishery, reunites, but it's far from a happy gathering. When the patriarch's youngest son, Agust (Hilmir Snaer Gudnason), visits from Paris along with his French girlfriend, Françoise (Hélène de Fougerolles), their presence exacerbates tensions with various relatives, including eldest brother Haraldur (Sigurdur Skulason), who works at the fishery, and his disenchanted wife, Aslaug (Elva Osk Olafsdottir).
