On an isolated island, Ester goes about her mundane life, quietly obeying her religious parents. One day the rebellious Ragna moves to town, they become friends and enjoy the summer nights, dreaming about something different, something better. A story of struggle, love and identity, and that growing desire to get away. As director Sakaris Stórá states: “We wanted to tell a poetic story about the fragility of standing on the doorstep to adulthood, and the brief encounters that forever shape our beliefs and our perception of ourselves. But we also wanted to inspire people and to show the world that universal stories can be told on a small island, in a country with only 50.000 inhabitants.”
