Denmark, Iceland 2015
When a vibrant woman about his own age and an eight-year-old girl unexpectedly enter his life, he is soon forced to step up; take a leap and find out where his wings will take him.
Like a bird that refuses to leave the nest, he still lives with his mother and has created a bubble-like world around him where he feels safe and secure.
Fúsi has no intentions of breaking the bubble; status quo is what he wants, but what he really needs is perhaps to take one small step forward in the board game of life.
The film was written with a specific actor in mind. Gunnar Jónsson is a natural talent who has done a lot of comedy over the past decade, but I have always dreamt of seeing him dealing with a more serious role.
