SUMMERLAND

by Grímur Hákonarson

synopsis

Lára, a mother of two, is gifted with a sixth sense. Not only does she communicate with people in Summerland (the sweet hereafter) in open trans-sceance sessions, but she also has good connection with elves. In her garden she and her husband, Oscar, have a big elf stone, which Lara attends to every day. Oscar runs the family business of elf tourism and medium sessions. Business is not exactly blooming, so when he gets an offer from a German eccentric to sell the stone for a substantial amount, he is really tempted.
