Icelandic comedy drama following a man who is accused of adultery and forced to move in with his parents. While he fights for custody of his four-year-old daughter, he is gradually sucked into a dispute between his parents and their neighbours over an old and beautiful tree. What starts as a typical spat between suburban neighbours unexpectedly and violently reaches a boiling point, soon spiralling out of control.
