A modern Icelandic fairy-tale, where life is celebrated - despite everything.
Trausti, the lighthouse keeper, prepares for his 100th birthday and/or funeral while trying to reconnect with the elf within. Meanwhile, Hulda retreats into a world of poetry with the help of an electric magnifying glass. When he starts singing, she tells him to stop screaming. In this world, life is celebrated – despite the reality that awaits us all.
