“Throughout the years the project becomes a larger-than-life adventure into which the filmmaker is inevitably drawn. Stepping in front of the camera, Sofia starts noticing and tracing parallels between her personal journey and the autobiographical journey of Dante. The lines between reality and fiction start to blur as the characters of the Divine Comedy come alive and this real-life treasure hunt in Iceland’s ethereal landscape turns into a discovery of what lies within.”
