The film is a country romance about “the human streak in the horse and the horse in the human, an ensemble film that tells stories of love and death. The struggles in the life of men and horses are often shown from the horses’ point of view and in the end all is tied together in the annual autumn round-up of the horses.”
It is the first feature from Erlingsson, an Icelandic award-winning actor and theatre director who also wrote the film’s script.
Producer Fridrik Thor Fridriksson is also a director and his feature Children of Nature was nominated as the Best Foreign »
