In 1920s Oslo, Henrik Larsen (Gard B. Eidsvold), an aspiring poet, leaves his girlfriend (Camilla Martens) to spend a year as a trapper in Greenland, where he is teamed with a sailor (Stellan Skarsgård) and a scientist (Bjørn Sundquist). The men are trapped in a tiny hut, as the arctic winter sets in, and a complex and intense love/hate relationship develops between the poet and the sailor - both who are more similar to one another than either would like to admit. Their conflict plays out in isolation amidst stunningly bleak arctic scenery, filmed in Svalbard.
