Noi the albino (Nói albinói)

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

Is he the village idiot or a genius in disguise? Seventeen-year-old Noi (Tómas Lemarquis) drifts through life on a remote fjord in the north of Iceland. In winter, the fjord is cut off from the outside world, surrounded by ominous mountains and buried under a shroud of snow. Noi dreams of escaping from this white-walled prison with Iris (Elin Hansdóttir), a city girl who works in a local gas staion. But his clumsy attempts at escape spiral out of control and end in complete failure. Only a natural disaster will shatter Noi's universe and offer him a window into a better world.
