Ásthildur Kjartansdóttir's assured feature debut focuses on a journalist who invites three immigrant women to share her house in Reykjavic. Division and discord soon arise.
After quitting her newspaper job, Gisella decides to write about meaningful topics, such as the terrible living conditions of migrant women Marisol, Abeba and Luna. In a misguided attempt to help solve their financial troubles, she invites them to live in her house that she inherited from her grandmother. At first everything works well, but soon the mutual respect between the three women turns into a power struggle and hospitality is replaced with rules and a system of punishments. A topical film, and a surprisingly warm drama about idealism, respect and the priceless human quality of empathy.
