The story of Backyard Village, penned by Guðmundur Óskarsson (here also serving as producer), revolves around a 40-year-old woman called Brynja (played by Laufey Elíasdóttir) who, after spending some time in a health spa in a small town, cannot bring herself to cross the heath separating her from the city she lives in, unwilling to meet her mother who has just returned to Iceland after leaving the family 35 years earlier. Brynja takes lodgings in a small guesthouse called Backyard Village, where she meets Mark (British actor Tim Plester), a 50-year-old Englishman who has been staying there for a couple of months while coming to terms with his own personal tragedy. The vulnerable pair share their feelings and come to form an unbreakable bond that will help them move on with their lives.
