In a remote Icelandic town, a bereaved former police chief (Ingvar Sigurdsson) begins to suspect a local man of having had an affair with his late wife, who died two years earlier in a tragic accident. Gradually, his obsession with uncovering the truth begins to take over his life, leading to dangerous consequences for both himself and his loved ones.
Iceland’s 2020 official Oscar submission for Best International Feature Film, A WHITE, WHITE DAY combines classic thriller tropes with director Hlynur Palmason’s distinctly Nordic sensibility, resulting in “storytelling that’s both powerful and fresh throughout, marking him as a talent to watch” (The Hollywood Reporter).
