A solitary farm is home to an equally solitary man named Gunnar. The endless silence that surrounds him is occasionally disturbed only by the barking of his canine companion, and by the presence of his granddaughter, who turns up one day… A tender story of unspoken fears, of powerful gestures that disguise weakness, and of mortality, a subject we all have to address at some point in our lives.


Synopsis

A solitary farm set amid the breathtaking Icelandic landscape is home to an equally solitary man named Gunnar. The silence, occasionally disturbed only by the barking of his canine companion, is an integral part of his existence. He doesn’t feel the need to speak or to share his feelings with anyone else. This attitude doesn’t impress his granddaughter Anna, however, who turns up one day to find out how her grampa is doing. But he can’t tell her… A tender story of unspoken fears, of powerful gestures that disguise weakness, and of mortality, a subject we all have to address at some point in our lives.
