Thorbjörn Steingrímsson has a strange passion for wrecked cars, and his farm in the remote Westfjords of Iceland is full of them. Smashed windows bear witness of accidents, and weathered logos tell a part of the industrial history of the area. One may discover a bird’s nest in a glove compartment of an old Scania bus.

Geovany is 25 years old and became a murderer when he was 12. He was a ruthless hitman for the 18th Street gang, and nowadays, he is serving his 35-year sentence in an isolation cell in El Salvador. He withdrew from the gang and joined an evangelical church that lavished God’s forgiveness on him in prison. However, there is a sin that is not forgivable for either the gang or the church: Geovanny is gay.
