Laxdaela Lárusar features a recently-divorced engineer from Reykjavík, who tries to save a small community in west Iceland from damnation while desperately trying to find himself.

The leading roles are played by Stefán Karl Stefánsson, Eggert Thorleifsson and Ágústa Eva Erlendsdóttir. A number of other well-known Icelandic actors appear in supporting roles, including Benedikt Erlingsson.
