The Storm

Sævar Guðmundsson

A police chief and two doctors are asked to lead the battle against a deadly pandemic and steer their nation through the storm.

With a focus on the human aspect, the documentary series tells the story of Covid-19 in Iceland from multiple angles. For two years the filmmakers had unprecedented access to those in charge of the decision-making in the fight against the virus.
