When Hannes retires from his job as a janitor the big, empty time span that is the rest of his life begins. He is estranged from his family, has hardly any friends and the relationship to his wife has faded. Through drastic events, Hannes realises that he has to adjust his life in order to help someone he loves. Volcano is a love story of someone who has to deal with the choices of the past and the difficulties of the present in order to embrace the future.

Volcano is more than a coming-of-age story of a 67-year-old man, who cannot show his emotions. Volcano is also a story about a family and how three generations deal with their past, present and future. All of the main characters in the film have some flaws, no one is perfect. People who love, suffer, get by. Blindly they try to find an outlet for their emotions. (Rúnar Rúnarsson)
