This film about time and art are based on the life and work of Icelandic artist Hreinn Friðfinnsson. His work is a poetic and philosophical exploration into every-day human experience where time and coincidence play an important role. Merging reality with fiction the project revisits selected works by Friðfinnsson and uses them as inspiration for a narrative.
