Agnes throws Atli out and does not want him to see their
daughter Ása anymore. He moves in with his parents, who
are involved in a bitter dispute over their big and beautiful
tree that casts a shadow on the neighbours’ deck. As
Atli fights for the right to see his daughter, the dispute
with the neighbours intensifies – property is damaged,
pets mysteriously go missing, security cameras are being
installed and there is a rumor that the neighbor was seen
with a chainsaw.
