Synopsis

Simon, who has taken too many punches from this world and has done too much time in U.S. prisons, returns to his ancestral homeland, Iceland, resigned to kill himself. Before he can complete the task, he meets Dúa, a free spirit he believes may well be his daughter. Simon rescues Dúa from a close scrape with the law and together they escape to Hamburg, smuggling an Icelandic falcon - the most prized export of the Vikings. Their plan is to sell it to a wealthy Arab. A great idea until they try it.
