Synopsis:

Hugi is a teacher in a tiny village in the East of Iceland. He is quite content by himself among the mountains, which surround the quiet village where hardly anyone walks the streets.

But after consulting with his AA-sponsor, Hugi decides to welcome him. Something he immediately regrets.
