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, as described in a press release from Poppoli Pictures.
The leading roles are played by Stefán Karl Stefánsson, Eggert Thorleifsson and Ágústa Eva Erlendsdóttir and a number of other well-known Icelandic actors appear in supporting roles, such as Hilmir Snaer Gudnason, Ingvar E. Sigurdsson and Nanna Kristín Magnúsdóttir.
