Set at the start of the 20th century in a fictional Icelandic fishing village, ‘Salka Valka’ follows the struggles of a penniless woman and her daughter, Salka Valka. They must eke out an existence in a small, isolated world where everyone is controlled by a single wealthy merchant, and where everything in life revolves around fish. Follow Salka’s development from a precocious child to a fiercely independent-minded adult. Her romantic spirit is challenged when she starts a relationship with a firebrand idealist, Arnaldur. His fights against the trading company for human rights reflect the contemporary clash of social ideals in Iceland.
