OT: Wolka

Árni Ólafur Ásgeirsson // Iceland, Poland, 2021
Fiction Feature // FF2021



A woman pursues a perfidious plan in this breathless thriller set in the Polish community of Iceland. Anna is released after 15 years in a Polish prison. She travels to a island off the coast of Iceland with a large Polish migrant community. Anna’s journey takes her to her sister and family – but the joy at this unexpected reunion is limited. A feeling of unease spreads. The visitor is disturbing the peace of the community. And it becomes increasingly clear that Anna has an agenda for which she is prepared to break the terms of her parole and sacrifice everything.
