Kjartansdóttir’s intelligent adaptation of Auður Jonsdottir’s 2006 novel looks at the relatively new phenomenon of immigration in Iceland. After quitting her newspaper job, Gisella decides to write about meaningful topics, such as the terrible living conditions of migrant women Marisol, Abeba and Luna. Her decision to invite them into her house frames a rewarding drama about idealism, respect and the priceless human quality of empathy.

Ásthildur Kjartansdóttir is a director, screenwriter and producer from Iceland. Her debut short film Palli alone in the world was released in 1997; The Deposit is her follow up and feature debut.
