Boddi hates the materialism of modern society. He attacks everything and everybody in his blog -humorously, but also with verve. No wonder he soon becomes an outlaw in the small town in Northern Iceland, where he lives. Boddi almost feels like his idol, the viking Grettir. After dramatic mishaps he mounts his sturdy mare Nietzsche, to go to the big city. He is packing a gun, ready for the big revolution. This dark comedy is based on Hallgrímur Helgasons novel of the same title.
