The Final Journey is a personal story from Elín Hirst, the director, and begins when she sees a old photo at an exhibition at the Emigration Center at Hofsós. The photograph is of an Icelandic settlers family in Canada who emigrated from Iceland to America in 1878. Elin decides to research the history of these people and finds unexpected information concerning her and her ancestors. She then traces the path of her ancestors to Canada and seeks out her relatives in America. Canada has the largest ethnic Icelandic population outside Iceland, with roughly 90.000 people of Icelandic descent. Many Icelandic Canadians are descendants of people who fled an eruption of the Icelandic volcano Askja in 1875.
