Screening time

Krilli makes the lobster soup at Bryggjan Café. His brother Alli sits with the old fishermen, the last boxer of the island and the translator of Don Quixote into Icelandic. Every day they find a new solution to the world's problems. Bryggjan Cafe is the home to old fishermen, where the stories about the dead neighbors are told, and crazy musicians perform their shows. It's the soul of Iceland's most sparsely populated village. Some tourists who accidentally arrive here are mesmerized: finally, a real authentic place on their journey. But the success of the café can become the cause of its extinction. The tourists are attracted by the authenticity. Some investors have also discovered it. They want to buy it, enlarge it and hang a large whale skeleton on the wall.
