In the Western Fjords of Iceland, between two small villages, is a road called Óshlið. The road connects the people from the village Bolungarvik to the world. Óshlið is framed by a steep mountainslope on one side and the Atlanic ocean on the other. Insurance companies demand that the people who live there buy a special insurance package for travelling on the road. Since the road was constructed, in the 1950s, many lifes have been lost in Óshlíð and the number of injured is countless. Landslides, avalanches, cliffs rolling down the mountainside hitting the road and those who are traveling. In addition, vehicles have frequently been tossed off the road by strong wind strokes, flying down cliffs and into the ocean. No one wants to stay longer on the road than is needed!
