The Lighthouse Keepers

On an island far, far out at sea there lives two women and a sheep. Sølvi and Astrid live on what the current pulls in and what they can harvest from the barren rock. One day, someone knocks on their door. Outside there is a man with neat hair and a huge suitcase. He is willing to sell them the contents of the suitcase in exchange for the island – something that he thinks is a bad deal for him, but of course they could always rent the island from him...

Astrid and Sølvi have always been content, but now opportunity is knocking, and someone will have to leave the island.
The Lighthouse Keepers is a story about salty sea, friendship and what you need to have enough.
