Beautiful Beings

Beautiful Beings

Iceland’s answer to Stand by Me. After bullied misfit Balli (Áskell Einar Pálmason) is adopted by leader Addi (Birgir Dagur Bjarkason) into his gang of outsiders, the boys form an incredible bond, venting their emotions through both acts of destruction and comradery.

As the gang’s exploits becoming increasingly dangerous, Addi begins to experience a series of strange, supernatural visions of the future warning him of their potential fates. Is the group’s future bound up in tragedy, or is it possible to change one’s destiny?
