In the middle of a hot Icelandic summer one property line finds itself as cold as ice when a series of disagreements between neighbours reaches a breaking point.
It all begins when Eybjorg complains about a large tree blocking the sun when she tries to sunbathe. The two neighbours, unable to let anything go, soon escalate this petty feud and let their passions run rampant in the need to be right. This gripping dark comedy lets nothing slide as every small detail of their lives, from the pets they like to garden decorations, become ammunition in what soon explodes into a laugh-out-loud and shocking end.
As one character asks: “Has everyone lost their mind?!” Yes. Yes they have.
