Jon is a middle-aged man who lives with his elderly mother somewhere on the edge of Iceland. It is obvious that his mother always knows how things should be. When Jon’s mother dies, the single most dominant person in his life passes away, his anchor is gone. Compelled to honor her last wish, Jon combs and dresses his mother’s dead body, puts her upright on the back seat of his old car, takes his loyal dog Bresnef along and drives. Taking on a journey to bring the body across Iceland to her home village for the final rest. As they travel on, Jon’s whole existence obtains a new meaning.
