A LITTLE ICELAND HISTORY OF FISHERMEN, TOURISTS, A VOLCANO AND A SHOTGUN

Bryggjan Cafe is the home to old fishermen, where the stories of the dead neighbors are told, and crazy musicians perform their shows. It’s the soul of Iceland’s most anodyne village. Some lost tourists get trapped here. Finally, a real place on the journey. But its success will be the cause of its extinction.

Krilli makes the lobster soup at Bryggjan Cafe. His brother Alli sits with the old fishermen, the last boxer on the island and the translator of Don Quixote into Icelandic. Every day they find a new solution to the world’s problems.

Some lost tourists are caught by the authenticity of the Bryggjan, by its atmosphere. Some investors have also discovered it. They want to buy it, enlarge it and hang a large whale skeleton on the wall.
