In a remote fishing village in Iceland, teenage boys Thor and Christian experience a turbulent summer. One wants to win the heart of a girl that he likes; the other, however, is discovering new feelings for his best friend. As summer ends and the harsh Icelandic winter sets in, the three friends realize that it’s time to leave the playground and face adulthood. Directed by Guðmundur Arnar Guðmundsson (Iceland, 2016). 129 min. In Icelandic with English subtitles.
