"★★★★ – happy-sad Icelandic road movie hits the spot" – Guardian

★★★★ – Eye for Film

Hilmar Oddsson’s darkly comedic road movie is an odyssey of self-discovery and acceptance across the ruggedly beautiful landscapes of Iceland.

Middle-aged and disappointed, Jón spends his days knitting and listening to the radio with his domineering elderly mother on their rural farmstead, but his isolated world is upended when she suddenly passes away.

Finding a series of instructions to follow upon her death, Jón sets out on a journey across the country to honour her final wishes – including being buried in her home village.
