Three American G.I.s are shipwrecked on the remote island of Hrisey off Iceland’s northern coast. They have missing weapons, few supplies, a broken radio and must rely on the locals for survival. To make matters worse, Hrisey is in the throes of the worst storm anyone can remember. As the GIs struggle to cope with both the island and its people, the lines between myth and reality become increasingly blurred. The soldiers, Icelanders, and the land itself are forced to ask just who is defending whom.
