Backyard Village

Brynja (40) finishes her stay in a health clinic in the village of Hveragerdi, Iceland, but is reluctant to return to her life in the capital so she takes lodgings in a small guesthouse. There she meets Mark (50), a tourist who, likewise, is reluctant to leave the nurturing community.
