Tagline: The truth lies beneath the surface

Plot: The Sea is a family drama set in a remote fishing village in Iceland. The whole existence of the village is based upon the local fisheries, but new economic realities are slowly eroding that foundation. The aging owners of small fishing boats are selling their fishing quotas to larger companies in other parts of the country and therefore the local processing plants have less work to offer and the community suffers.

Thordur, the ruthless patriarch of the main fishing company in the village, refuses to give in. His stand is that the benefits of greater efficiency can only come at the unacceptable cost of closing his plant and thus closing down the village. But while he's delivering sermons along those lines he also makes an aside about how the only people willing to work at his plant are foreign migrant labourers, so it is not really clear what he wants to save. But save it he does. However he also realizes that he is aging and his preferences might become moot in a heartbeat or lack thereof. The therefore decides to summon his children home, hoping to put his house in order.

He has three children. Haraldur the oldest has been minding the shop in the fishing plant, but he is weak willed and not really up to the job. To make matters worse he is in constant financial difficulties
