On an August midday, somewhere in the remote vastness of rural Iceland, the carefree eleven-year-old, Hera, is unaware that a tragic accident will soon rob her of her last share of happiness. As a result, Hera will rebel against God with an unquenched rage, permeated with the vivid memory of her brother that pulsates in every corner of the house--and under those circumstances, alienated and suicidal--Hera will soon drag herself into a dreary, dead-end life. Still blaming God for the injustice and fending off any attempts at reconciliation from the local priest, the troubled teenager will embrace her brother's lifestyle, delving deep into the unexplored and fascinating new music movement of Black Metal, finding a new purpose in life. In the end, with the wounds of the past still angry and wide-open, while aching for a closure, will Hera grasp in time that wallowing in grief will eat her up alive?Written by

My pain, it drains my soul. Plagued defeat. Black sands of Iden, as far as the eye can see. Lacerated all land, as far as the eye can see. There shall be no end...

A throwback in time. To some to a better time (and music) and to a smaller village that is center stage here. We do have a girl who's different and is not really liked for that reason. The story has a lot of good songs (again only if you like the music of course) and a character development that might be predictable but still works, especially because of the acting.
It stays true to its nature most of the time, not going for an easy way out (no pun intended), but might have jumped the shark a bit at the ending (depending on your view of what's happening). Still good strong characters and a nice story.
