Grimsey

The love story between Norberto and Bruno is over. This separation is very painful, especially for Bruno because he still loves his ex-partner and can not resign himself to the sad outcome. Norberto takes refuge in Iceland in order to make a clean break from Bruno and to cover his own tracks definitely. When Bruno discovers that he has gone, he decides to leave Spain and track him down. He wants to meet him and bring him back into his arms. Once in Reykjavik he meets Arnau, another Spanish man who lives and works there as a guide. Arnau decides to help Bruno find Norberto, but after 10 days and many unanswered phone calls, it seems that Norberto has disappeared into thin air. Bruno feels emotionally devastated: this situation is intolerable to him and the memory of their love turns into a wound which will not heal. The gloomy and desolate landscapes that surround him seem to reflect his mood.
