Synopsis

Once upon a time in the Faroe Islands, there lived three brothers. After the death of one brother, the other two struggle with their different ways of grieving, and generally just get on each other's nerves. Beautiful rugged scenery of the remote Faroe Islands acts as a backdrop to a timeless story of brothers with diametrically opposite relationships to religion, duty and family.
