Summary
  • A lonely handyman discovers new meaning in his life when he visits a dilapidated hotel in a war-torn country
  • Divorced and lonely, Jónas Ebeneser leaves his home in Iceland for a city thousands of miles away pummeled by war and violence, now at tentative peace. He brings with him only his toolbox, scars, and grief. While he plans his suicide, the people of the town draw him out with their endless list of broken items to be fixed-- and into a world of surprise, love, and transformation
