Cold Fever

Cold Fever is a story of golf and ghosts; an old Citroen and exploding icebergs; funerals and boiled sheep heads; men's choirs and Icelandic country & western bands; a potent liquor called Black Death and auras; and most of all the story of how one young man goes on a very difficult journey to find out something important about himself.

Synopsis

Atsushi Hirata, a young Tokyo executive, is looking forward to his yearly holiday playing golf in Hawaii. His plans change suddenly when his grandfather convinces him that he should perform a memorial service for Atsushi's parents at the spot where they died: a remote river in Iceland.
