690 Vopnafjordur

In the middle of nowhere the 645 people of the municipality of Vopnafjördur go about their daily lives. While individual residents carry the responsibility of ensuring the community’s future, the fear of depopulation is ever-present. The film explores the communal tensions that push people to stay or leave a place like Vopnafjördur.
