Synopsis

The protagonist Ketill Larsen is a 71-year-old man living in a desolate house on a hill with a view of a shopping mall on the outskirts of Reykjavik. Each day, with a bag filled with his own works, he hitchhikes to the city center where he writes poems and makes paintings (at least 15 a day) in his favorite cafes. As a retired actor he has a number of stories to tell which he stores using a portable tape recorder, and during Christmas time he dresses as Santa Claus. Though widely known in Iceland, Ketill remains a mysterious figure and an exception to the social norm. Joseph Marzolla and Tomas Lemarquis have created a film where the reality and the fantastical world of Ketill´s creations meet in an unforgettable journey. Ketill is a remarkable personality, who has a number of stories to tell and unusual experiences to share. He is a true artist, dedicated to his art and poetic in his everyday life.
