TUE—April 28—6 PM, free

In her early seventies, Elín Jónsdóttir is living an isolated existence in Reykjavík, making props and prosthetics for theatrical productions and crime films. When she becomes involved in a production by the sensitive young playwright Ellen Álfsdóttir — another loner, and the illegitimate daughter of a famous writer — she becomes increasingly fascinated by her, while also finding herself stirred by discomfiting memories long packed away. Their paths have crossed before: but one doesn’t remember, and the other is about to forget.
