Watch The Seagull's Laughter

It is 1953, and Freya, who had gone to America as an officer's bride, has returned home to begin a new life. She moves into a small house of distant relatives in a quiet fishing village outside Reykjavik. But unlike the drab, plump girl who went abroad, Freya, now in her twenties, is a stunningly beautiful woman. With her long chestnut brown hair, slender figure, and chic American fashions, she is somewhat of a mystery to the women of the household, including the inquisitive eleven-yearold Agga, and especially to the men of the community. But as Agga soon notices, strange things have been happening since Freya's arrival. Women are asserting their independence and men are mysteriously keeling over. Who exactly is Freya? A Viking heroine? A fairy queen? A murderess? A goddess of love? These are questions little Agga, our young spy, would very much like to have answered.
