Helgi (Trostur Gunarsson) is a writer looking for a place where he can work in peace and quiet. He thinks he finds the perfect environment when he moves with his girlfriend to a remote fjord, but the isolation begins to affect him in unusual ways. Obssessed with the fact that his mother abandoned him to run away with a reindeer researcher when he was very young, Helgi has vivid dreams about herds of reindeer, and soon begins to slip into psychosis.
