A brother odyssey set in a working environment during a cold winter. We follow two brothers, their routines, habits, rituals and a violent feud that erupts between them and another family. Hlynur Palmason’s debut feature was one of the most talked about films in the last edition of the prestigious Locarno Film Festival, where the film began an impressive path, earning 21 awards and much praise in the process.
