A psychological drama where past wrongs are put right. Baddi has a rundown car-repair business on a remote cape in Iceland. The garage has been struggling for years but the new highway across the cape has creamed off what little trade was left. Now Baddi is in the middle of nowhere.


Baddi’s life has been a downward spiral ever since his wife was murdered some years back. The convicted killer - a family friend - escaped and fled to South America, and has not been heard from since. Baddi's assistant Raggi is not too bright but he's a genius when it comes to fixing cars. He's mad about Baddi's daughter Sissa, but like her brother, Haffi, the tension of home life have taken a toll on her. Nevertheless they struggle to get by and keep their spirits up. The fragile balance of their relationship is shattered by the unexpected arrival of Pétur. He's decided the time has come to settle old scores with Baddi, the man whose wife he allegedly killed and he becomes the catalyst in an astonishing sequence of events that brings the unwelcome truth to the surface at last.
