Higher Force

David is a low-life debt collector in a gang in Reykjavik, Iceland. Upon moving into a new building, David befriends the landlord, Harald, a lonely elementary school teacher, who senses the young man's insecurity and need for guidance. When Harald finds out that David is a member of a debt-collectors gang, he starts playing himself off as a big crime lord, owning real estate all over the city and being the most dangerous man in town.
