After being kicked out by his wife, thirtysomething Atli finds himself back at home, living with his retired parents. As he fights for custody of his daughter, he’s sent into a spiral of frustration and obsession, only to find himself at the center of an even bigger drama: the battle between his parents and their neighbors over an old tree. A riotous, pitch-black cringe comedy from the director of Either Way (remade in the U.S. by David Gordon Green as Prince Avalanche in 2013).
