Back Soon

A comedic road-movie about Anna Hallgrimsdottir, a poetess, dish washer and marijuana dealer in her late thirties.


Tired of her lifestyle and the coldness of Iceland, Anna wishes to show her two sons more of the world. Finally, she decides to do something about it, move on, and somewhat change her lifestyle. The first step in her revival is to sell her business which consists of her mobile telephone which includes her big list of clients. The sale is an unusual one and the potential buyer promises her the asking price within 48 hours. During those 48 hours Anna gets into all kinds of “Icelandic familial adventures” as her kitchen fills up with customers/friends, partying, while waiting for her to come Back Soon.
