When a fishing boat capsizes during a torrential storm, Gulli (Ólafur Darri Ólafsson) and his crew are plunged into the freezing sea miles from land. Despite the rest of the men dying within minutes of hitting the ice-cold water, Gulli swims for his life and miraculously beats all odds in the extreme conditions. Tested to the limits as he attempts the epic journey home across treacherous volcanic terrain, he will eventually discover that his survival comes at a price.
An ungushing presentation.

A nicely crafted presentation of a man caught in a real life catastrophe at sea, saved by his body fat. There's a plus to everything! Olafur Olafsson deserved his wages for going thru what must have been a very gruelling time making this movie. I was quite taken with his acting skills when I saw him in the recent Icelandic television series 'Trapped'. A very natural actor. He didn't disappoint.
