At the edge of Iceland’s Reykjanes peninsula, two women’s lives will intersect – for a brief moment – while being trapped by unforeseen circumstances. Between a struggling single Icelandic mother and a political asylum seeker from Africa, an intimate bond will form as both fight to get their lives back on track.
