María and Ingvar live on a remote farm in Iceland, far from any neighbours. The two do not need many words to communicate, either at the dining table or in the stable. When they tend to the flock of sheep together, their movements are well rehearsed. Including during the birth of new lambs. One baby lamb is different from all the others, and the childless couple give the unique creature special attention. The unannounced visit of Ingvar's brother rocks the boat, and at the same time the sheep on the farm start becoming more and more restless. The film, which plays with elements of horror, draws upon Norse mythology and its mythical creatures and forest spirits. Our imagination allows us to conjure these mysteries in our minds as we search for clues in the barren, cloud-draped valleys. Do the eyes of the sheep really glow so strangely? And at whom are those eyes actually directed?
