The life in a quiet fiord in Iceland is about to change. A stunning newcomer: scientific centre is built opposite a serene fisherman village. Dan Solberg, a Norwegian historian arrives late in the evening to commence work on the historical analysis of the place. Soon he is driven into a whirlpool of diverse cultural relations, created by the unique amalgam of people involved into the project. Meanwhile the manager of the Centre, Henning Olsen, has problems of his own: he needs to popularise the Centre and join an important scientific organisation in order to avoid marginalisation due to the geographic location but soon he realised somebody is working against him.
