Two solitary and cranky creatures meet each other in the empty landscape of Iceland. At the interface of their meeting different possibilities of “the moment” between them happen and vanish as quickly as they appeared. Referring to early Icelandic elf and fairy tales “augnablik” develops into a contemporary road movie. A lyrical journey with Erna Ómarsdottir and Luc Dunberry.
