Synopsis

1913 - A remote island in the middle of the roaring Atlantic hosts a wedding. The beautiful Sirsa has decided to try and forget her true love, the wild and romantic Ivar, choosing instead to marry Harald, son of the most important family on the island. While Ivar and Harald battle for Sirsa's affections, the colourful assortment of guests dance the rhythmic and hypnotic Faroese dance, only breaking from their merriment for a shipwreck, looters, a close encounter with the devil and the disappearance of the bride.
