After spending some time in a health spa in a small town, BRYNJA is unable to cross the heath separating her from the city she lives in, shielding her from having to meet her mother who has just returned to Iceland after leaving the family 35 years earlier. Brynja takes lodgings in a small guesthouse, Backyard Village, where she meets MARK, an Englishman who has stayed there a couple of months while coming to terms with his own, personal tragedy. The vulnerable pair share and lock feelings to form an unbreakable bond and move on with their lives
