Idealistic Iceland

After studying cultural sustainability, Elin realized the only way to save a traditional Icelandic community, is to move to one. So she's leaving behind the creature comforts of Reykjavik, for farm life in Árneshreppur. She's dreamed about a pastoral existence with her daughter Jóhanna so she wants a romantic farmhouse, but this isolated district only has a finite supply of houses. Along for the hunt, friend and former resident Inga, knows survival here is dependent on finding a practical home. Getting to this pristine off the grid location is half the battle, learning to thrive is the other.
