Directed by: 
Echo (Rúnar Rúnarsson)

A black man on a sunbed bemoaning the darkness of Iceland; an old house burnt down instead of paying to renovate; police dragging refugees out of a church asylum; wage fraud on a construction site; methadone dispensed to an addict; meat inspection at a beauty contest; the needy playing Monopoly – and family stress playing out again and again! In 56 mini-dramas, director Rúnar Rúnarsson bears witness to harsh changes in the social climate. His minimalistic film miniatures, in which the tragic and the banal, the comic and the melancholic are closely intertwined, take a merciless look at the social division and glaciation of Iceland.
