Small Mountain
Heidin Director: Einar Thor

It is Election Day in a quiet seaside village and Emil, a local handyman, is entrusted to take the sealed ballot box to the local airport to be flown to the city for counting. As he starts his journey Emil finds himself resolving a dispute between two young boys over a bicycle and a sister´s promise to sing a song. Unbeknownst to Emil, his son Albert, a broody young man, has returned to the village for a confrontation about their fractured relationship.

SMALL MOUNTAIN is a highly appealing blend of stunning Icelandic locations, great characters, quirky comedy, with an undertone of sadness and menace. The latter is supplied by Emil's son Albert, an enigmatic and seemingly out-of-control young man who has apparently returned to this community to get back at his father.
