Heartstone

Hjartasteinn

Thor and Kristján live in a remote fishing village in Iceland where everyone knows everyone and nothing is hidden from the other. The boys have been friends from a young age and spend every minute of their free time together: they go fishing, meet in the junkyard or at the game machine in the pub. But this summer everything feels different: Thor often secretly stands in front of the mirror and observes the changes on his body. His sister Rakel’s saucy jokes really get on his nerves, and he only has eyes for twelve-year-old Beta. The self-confident girl is rumoured to have slept with much older Ginger. Thor is too shy to court Beta and is therefore happy about every tip his friend can give him. However, when the two of them eventually get closer, Kristján discovers that his feelings for Thor are more than just friendship. But the latter wants everything between them to be like before and he wants the village gossip about „the queer“ to finally stop.
