In a remote Icelandic town, an off-duty police chief begins to suspect a local man of having had an affair with his late wife, who died in a tragic accident two years earlier. Gradually his obsession for finding out the truth builds and inevitably he begins to himself and his loved ones in danger. A story of grief, revenge, and unconditional love.
