Lobster Soup

Spain, Iceland, Lithuania2020documentary95'International Documentary Competition

A family restaurant in the fishing town of Grindavík is a small centre of the world. It is here where old sea dogs and local misfits have been meeting for years. It is the place of disputes lasting for hours, reminiscences and jazz concerts. It is here where they serve one of a kind seafood soup every day. But the world is moving forward and changes are becoming increasingly painful for the eatery’s regular clients. This quiet Islandic town in the shadow of volcanos attracts tourists and big business. Will it be possible to save something that has been created by Krilli and his mates together at this extraordinary place on Earth?
