Synopsis

A social satire dealing with the everyday life of Júlli, a young man restricted by loneliness and habit. By chance, he meets a young Chinese woman who brings much needed stability to his life. He falls in love only to see the relationship disintegrate in dramatic fashion, thanks to his insecurity, hyper-nervous state and lack of experience. However, once he manages to put disillusion and disappointment of the breakup behind him, Júlli is determined to do everything in his power to get a second chance.

Douglas was born in Iceland, in a small village just outside the capital Reykjavik. He would spend his summers with his grandparents in and around Coleraine, Northern Ireland. When it comes to film, Douglas is for the most part self-taught. His mother is Icelandic and is a civil servant. and his Irish father is a geologist and teacher who has lived in Iceland for many years. As a young boy, his father would let him use his 8mm camera and later on, the family video camera, to make numerous short movies.
