There’s a saying that there’s no such thing as a former policeman. Ingimundur is an example that the saying is actually true. Being a police chief on leave, he is mourning the accidental death of his wife while, at the same time, there is a little possibility that the woman to whom he had been happily married for years hasn't been faithful to him. The obsession of his wife’s possible affair slowly possesses Ingimundur’s life and poisons the relationship with his loved ones. The dramatical situation is set in an Icelandic town, located far and away from the civilisation. Saying that this is a drama shouldn’t fool you into believing that some sort of strong emotions are being expressed all the time in this film. No, my friend, this is the North, where people don’t rely on cheap self-help guides to teach them how to artificially maintain a non-stop positive attitude to the world, to life. This is the real world.
