Adequate Beings

An interwoven story of four characters in a small Icelandic farming community of Budardal Valley who are locked in a constant struggle for survival where the pressures of free market economy and the modern age are phasing out old traditional values. Bjarni (50) and his mother Sigrún (78), Mundi (93) and young farmer Skjöldur (35) are represented in this lyrical insight into a community that stuggles with market middlemen that press down produce prices, leaving increasingly less profit for the farmers themselves and threatening the fundamentals of their existence. Despite these adversities the community refuses to throw in the towel.
