Young Danish writer Nina moves to the Faroe Islands with her boyfriend William. The cute, old house on the isolated island of Kalsoy, surrounded by a harsh natural landscape, seems like the perfect place to write her first novel. But Nina has writer’s block and, although the two are expecting a child, William is hardly there. A doctor with a new job at the Klaksvík hospital, he is consumed by work. Nina does not deal well with her loneliness, but she tries to hide it. After an encounter with the village priest, and hearing about the local myth of the Seal Woman, the already fretful Nina becomes even more uneasy. Set against the impressive scenery of the Faroe Islands, director Maria Winther Olsen stages an intense, increasingly claustrophobic psychological drama with Marie Tourell Søderberg (“Itsi Bitsi”, NFL 2014) in the lead.
