After the death of his fiancée, an American illustrator runs out of medication while wandering the isolated Icelandic countryside - unsure if his compulsions are related to his disorder or if he's being forced to unlock ancient secrets.
Drawing on true stories and interviews with the families of addicts, this harrowing portrait of addiction follows Stella and Magnea through the decades as precarious teenage years morph into perilous adulthoods.

This film was screened at London International Film Festival this morning and it was absolutely hilarious. The audience were in tears with laughter! I don't want to give away the jokes but every ego trip, pretension and cliché that can occur during a film shoot were presented with complete realism. The characters were played totally straight and the comedy is masterful. I wish every success for this film - it should be screened everywhere and awards all round.
