Páll is an artistic and sensitive young man. Getting dumped by his girlfriend, Dagny, triggers his descent into madness. We follow him on his way to what seems like inevitable doom; at home with his parents who finally can't cope, and in the mental institution, Kleppur.
Never fall in love because you will become a madman.
