Description

Painfully shy, 43-year-old Fusi, is a gentle giant of a man who works at the Reykjavik airport, but has never been on an airplane. This WWII-battle buff still lives at home with his mother and is the butt of his co-workers’ malicious teasing. He gets on best with the young daughter of a neighbor, but that makes the other residents of the building suspect that he’s a pedophile. When his mother’s boyfriend gives him the unwanted gift of dancing lessons, it marks the beginning of a new life.
