A WHITE, WHITE DAY is set in a remote Icelandic town, where an off duty police chief begins to suspect a local man for having had an affair with his wife, who recently died in a car accident. Gradually his obsession for finding out the truth accumulates and inevitably begins to endanger himself and his loved ones. A story of grief, revenge and unconditional love.

“An eerily gripping study of grief – and impotence in its face – with the trappings of a revenge thriller.”
