When Hildur - a beautiful high society girl and a regular guest in the national celebrity press - finds out that her boyfriend Jolli is about to go into jail, she realizes she has to learn to stand on her own two feet. Hildur, possessing no skills or any practical experience, tries to find work but without success. She's about to give up when by pure coincidence she lands a job selling role playing books and accessories at the local fantasy-shop Astropia. Gradually unlikely friendships are formed and Hildur enters the fantasy world of role playing where she struts around in a skimpy outfit slaying Orcs and Goblins and the world of adventure starts blending into her real life. Her old boyfriend Jolli, determined to get Hildur and his old lifestyle back, breaks out of jail and kidnaps Hildur. Hildur's ragtag group of friends are not about to let her go without a fight.Written by
The most underrated Icelandic film. A completely neglected genre of comedy action adventure film. It's Legally blond meets Shawshank redemption with a touch of very refreshing imagination-to-reality style of fantasy role playing sequences. Don't let the negative reviews fool you. The film is perfectly fine for what it is. It's a light hearted comedy they doesn't take itself too seriously.
