    • Synopsis
    • When Gabriel returns to Iceland from a two-week trip to Manchester, England, all those close to him seem to think that he has changed somewhat. Having met and befriended his stylist roommate Marcus in the UK, a free thinking, rebellious teenager.
      Through a series of unfortunate events, tragedy befalls this tight-knit group when Stella, Gabriels best girlfriend, takes her own life. Crushed, Gabriel falls into a black hole of despair, which forces him to take a hard look at himself - which ultimately forces him to reveal a harsh, agonizing secret about himself.
      What ensues is a tale of complex and fragile relationships, where teenagers struggle with their identities, while forging their place in a sometimes unyielding society. All the while coping with love, loss, hate, betrayal, euphoria, sadness and ultimately, forgiveness.
