A young man’s mythical quest for a stone that fell from the sky. He searches, stumbles and suffers as he traverses the sadistic universe of Northern Europe. He only finds redemption on the very edge of madness. Based on the iconic Dutch novel ‘Nooit meer slapen’ by Willem Frederik Hermans.

A young geologist ventures out into the vast tundra of northern Norway to finish his research on meteorite craters, only to get hopelessly lost in both the wilderness and his own mind.
