Script based on a novella by Gudbergur Bergsson, one of Iceland’s leading authors described by Milan Kundera as ”A great European novelist”.
Life progresses in a seemingly futile manner towards the inevitable emptiness of death. An old man, carrying on with life although he doesn’t want to, waits for a tea kettle to boil. Meanwhile, he is haunted by memories of everything he lost through youth’s inexorable surrender to decline.

Written by: Ari Alexander Ergis Magnusson (Icelandic Film Corporation)
