Sigurdur Sigurjonsson and a horned friend in Rams

Sigurdur Sigurjonsson and a horned friend in Rams

In a secluded valley in Iceland, brothers Gummi (Sigurdur Sigurjonsson) and Kiddi (Theodor Juliusson) live side by side, tending to their prized ancestral sheep. Although they share the land and a way of life, Gummi and Kiddi have not spoken to each other in four decades.

When a lethal disease suddenly infects Kiddi’s sheep, the entire valley comes under threat.  The authorities decide to cull all the animals in the area to contain the outbreak.  This is a near death sentence for the farmers, whose sheep are their main source of income, and many abandon their land.  But Gummi and Kiddi don’t give up so easily – and each brother tries to stave off the disaster in his own fashion: Kiddi by using his rifle and Gummi by using his wits.  As the authorities close in, the brothers will need to come together to save the day…!

Presented in Icelandic with English subtitles, Rams is written and directed by Grimur Hakonarson.
