Alfred (Hilmar Guðjónsson) and Finnbogi (Sveinn Ólafur Gunnarsson) work together painting the dividing lines on Icelandic public roads, in a sparse and uninhabited landscape. Having only each other for company – being visited sporadically by a jovial trucker plying them with drink - the two men’s personal differences are the source of equal parts laughter and frustration. Writer/ Director Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson has created a carefully paced comedy of opposites – between stillness and slapstick, activity and inertia and silence broken by thumping electro.
