A small fishing village in Iceland is the backdrop for this family drama of Chekovian or Shakespearean proportions. The patriarch is a fisherman who is now owner of one of the remaining processing plants in the village. He is getting older and not in great health, so he decides to call his children together to tell them what his plans are. Rumors in town abound about his plans and secret wealth. Augst is living in Paris with his girlfriend and has become a musician without letting on to any of his family, who expect him to take over the business. Haraldur is running the business ineffectually and making shady deals in a backhanded ploy to gain control of the business from his father. Ragnheiður is bitter. She's living comfortably, but still holding on to the pain of rape and abuse suffered in her youth. There are other family secrets that will rip any tiny shred of good will any of this disfunctional family had for each other.
