After his boyfriend Norberto (Eugenio Sanz) breaks up with him and runs away to Iceland, heartbroken Bruno (Richard Garcia) decides to set out to find him. He soon meets Arnau (Raul Portero), a handsome local tour guide in Reykjavik, who is determined to help Bruno in his exceedingly idealistic search. Their trip will become a grieving process for them both, until they reach the remote island of Grimsey. There, Bruno will have to learn what love really means in order to move on with his life.
Lead actors Richard Garcia and Raul Portero also wrote and directed this charming and deeply sweet new romance, which doubles as an Icelandic travelogue. After the debut of his short film Taboulé, Garcia was selected by MoMA and the Film Society Lincoln Center for their New Directors/New Films festival and won many international awards. His previous short Ana’s Way starring Marisa Paredes, won big at the Malaga International Film Festival and was also part of the official competition of several international festivals, including Tribeca.
Portero made a name for himself as a novelist before moving over to film. His books “La vida que soñamos,” “La piel gruesa,” “Reykjavík línea 11” and “La canción pop” have also earned acclaim and awards.
It’s coming to DVD on June 25th June 2018.
