THE STORY: What can you do when no one listens? When injustice is so much that you could scream your lungs out but you don't have a voice? When the lie is so big that it suffocates the life you should have ahead of you? Grímur is an intelligent college boy in reykjavik that is not content with his environment and society. He meets Brynhildur, a tough and seeking girl and together they decide to be heard. An idea is born, but in a world where everything is valued by money, how much is a persons life worth? In a world like that, ideas about justice can be dangerous.

THE MUSIC: The music is mainly from the viewpoint of the young persons that want to revolt. The music had to be the sound of terrorism, dangerous, aggressive, convinced, unpredictable but well organized. Like unstoppable propaganda that is going all the way. There was also some lighter music and "classical" music needed.
