Iceland, 1940. The British are coming.


With 2,500 troops arriving in Reykjavik, the women of Iceland certainly have something to focus on. KATE is the story of one Icelandic family following the outbreak of war, with their wayward daughter Selma and helpful lodger, Kate. A lively reflection on the shared and lost history between Britain and Iceland, with live music and galeforce winds.
