Not the End of the World

Faroe Islands, Denmark

To ease her guilty mind, a woman sets out to deliver a message from her deceased mother to her estranged grandfather. But his spiteful nature makes it hard for her to do so.


Erratic and headstrong LAURA (44) hasn’t reconciled with her dying mother before it was too late and sets out to ease her guilty conscience by bringing a message from her mother to her spiteful and estranged grandfather in her native Faroe Islands. This becomes a difficult journey filled with fall outs and misunderstandings, but ends up being her way to inner peace, closeness with her grandfather and an encounter with the biological father she never knew about.
