In 24 hours, forty-something professor Jon will be getting married to a student half his age. But before he can make it to the ceremony, he'll have to deal with a massive debt to his mother-in-law to-be, his extremely drunk best man, the logistics of a remote Icelandic island, an increasingly hostile reverend, and the guilt-ridden memory of his emotionally unstable first wife. Can love survive one final night under the midnight sun or is the road to happiness paved with blissful ignorance? Hilmir Snaer Gudnason (101 Reykjavik) stars in this internationally acclaimed comedy/drama from writer/director Baltasar Kormakur (Jar City).

married tomorrow, for the second time, to one
of his ex-students half his age. But it's not all
roses. Firstly, there's his cranky mother-in-lawto-
be who violently opposes the marriage and
who demands repayment of Jon's loan before
the wedding night. Secondly, his plans to build
a golf course on the little island of Flatey where
they live aren't going at all to plan. Thirdly his
extremely drunk best man is on the loose without
any shoes and lastly, the continual presence of his
emotional first wife is haunting his every move...
When the guests start flocking to the island, Jon
starts getting cold feet... After a very long night of
drinking and thinking, will Jon be able to make it
to the church on time?
