Summer Children
Official selection in 2017 Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival First Feature Competition
Synopsis

Eydís(6) and Kári(5) are sent to a children’s home in the countryside after their parents’ marrage falls apart. Eydís is sure that their stay will be short and their mother will come and get them. But time passes, the days go by and the children are disappointed time and time again. The children’s emotional needs are completely ignored. The head nanny can’t stand Eydís’s optimism and joie de vivre, which don’t take a hit no matter how mean the staff is to her. One fall day, as Eydís and Kári watch the summer children return to their homes, hope seems lost. But Eydís doesn’t give up and eventually finds a way out. With her cleverness, drive and concern for her brother she plans their escape. However, they have a long way to go and the harsh landscape and cold weather to conquer.
