Descendants

Tinna Hrafnsdóttir

After the banking crisis the travel industry became a desirable goldmine in Iceland. When three very different, middle-aged siblings inherit the successful whale watching company and the beautiful summerhouse their parents built, things become extremely difficult. To take joint decisions about the legacy they all feel entitled to creates complex circumstances, and when they start to manipulate what they are to share, old wounds open up with dire consequences where hurt, greed and the well-known dysfunction of family relations come to light.
