    Thriller

    Mihkel and Igor have been friends since childhood. When their native Estonia regained its independence in 1991, the first country to formally recognize this fact was Iceland. Iceland immediately became a symbol of hope and justice. Twenty years later the boys decide to move to the beautiful island – Igor first, to be followed by Mihkel and his girlfriend. But events take an unexpected turn… A film based on real events that took place in 2004 in Iceland. A story of biblical betrayal in which a modern-day Judas sells out his brother.
