Work in Progress


Ari Alexander Ergis Magnússon

Epilogue tells the story of an 85 year old man who has recently lost his wife. By mixing his wife's ashes in a cup of hot water and drinking it, she appears to him, and they share memories of their life together.

The film follows the old man's journey as he seeks to find solace and a renewed purpose in life with the assistance of his cheerful neighbor. Along the way, he encounters an array of unique characters, including a self-centered doctor, a smooth-talking coffin salesman, a shamanic yoga teacher, mysterious nuns, a young Faroese bride-to-be, and a small white dog named Shadow.

The old man's journey is a touching exploration of grief, love, and the human experience.
