Footsteps

On a quiet street in Reykjavík, an elderly man goes about his daily routine until a ring of the doorbell brings a change to his familiar pattern. In steps a young grandson in need of being kept an eye on. Eventually, despite protests, the boy drags the old man down to a local park to play football. While playing, the mismatch between the elderly grandfather and young grandson quickly becomes apparent, with the youngster running rings around his senior. The old man, with a bruised ego and full of reminiscence over his youth, begins to prepare for their next encounter.
