In a remote Icelandic town, an off-duty police chief begins to suspect a local man of having had an affair with his late wife, who died in a tragic accident two years earlier. Gradually his obsession for finding out the truth accumulates and inevitably begins to endanger himself and his loved ones. A spellbinding and darkly humorous new drama about a stoic grandfather whose emotional reserves are pushed to their limits.
