Every Day Heroes

Magnea B. Valdimarsdóttir

Zineta, Ebru, Karolina and Maria Victoria live in Iceland. They are born in four very different countries but different reasons are behind their arrival here. With a solid relationship between the director and the main characters of the film, they open their hearts to what it is like to be a foreign woman in Iceland. Everyone has a story to tell, but what they all have in common is the fact of injustice and prejudice that foreigners experience in iceland.
