Plot synopsis
Having lost his wife in a plane crash, a man tries to find out the real reason for the disaster. Forced to sift through all the lies amassing around him, he temporarily forgets about his grief. He finds a f light crew who survived a crash and celebrates his rebirth with them. Suddenly, moments of grief turn into a never-before-experienced f lash of freedom for him. This illusion becomes a lulling trap in which he can relive the happiest moments of his life. This is an ordinary life where simple things become rare and unusual, and where grief turns to joy. According to the director the plot of the film came about when he was „watching people who lost their loved ones and out of loneliness they’ve suddenly acquired a new vision, a new freedom.“ (http://eng.riff.is/vitranir/fljugeu-haerra)
