"My mother was a poor woman, who had nothing to give me but poetry -- that was all she owned, all she had," begins a passage by the poet Þorsteinn frá Hamri, included in Iceland's introductory film to the 2010 Frankfurt Book Fair.

A book opening in an Icelandic landscape, hot springs and mountains, and Nobel Laureate Halldór Laxness explaining how the country always pulls its people back home.

Composition / Editing: Þorsteinn J.

Music: Rökkurró (www.myspace.com/rokkurro)
