Westman Islands, 1984. When the Breki-VI, an Icelandic trawler, goes down with all hands bar one, the sole survivor, Gulli (Ólafsson), is feted as a hero and a scientific anomaly. But how did he endure six hours in freezing seas and can he endure survivor's guilt?
Back on home turf, Contraband director Kormákur has made a suitably dramatic recreation of a remarkable episode.
