Bringing up father

Teacher and former alcoholic Hugi, has made a peaceful life for himself in a tiny village in the northwest of Iceland, where he spends his days jogging, attending AA-meetings and learning Portuguese online. When he receives an unexpected visit from his estranged and hedonistic father, it threatens the frail balance of his existence. PARIS OF THE NORTH is a contemplative comedy drama shot in long, static takes.
