In a secluded Icelandic valley, estranged brothers are warring neighbours, competing for the best ram prize that has become a symbol of their family feud. But when scrapie disease threatens their sheep flocks, the brothers are faced with the prospect of a cull, threatening their way of life. A dead-pan Scandi comedy-drama with stubborn men in big beards & jumpers trying to survive. It‘s cold, hilariously comic & sometimes tragic. Put on your chunkiest knitwear & make a Nordic night of it.
