Heartstone

A remote fishing village in Iceland. Teenage boys Thor and Christian experience a turbulent summer of emotional discovery and sexual awakening. One tries to win the heart of a girl while the other realizes new feelings toward his best friend. As summer ends and the harsh nature of Iceland takes back its rights, it’s time to leave the playground and face adulthood.
