An excerpt from documentary by Hilmar Oddsson

Synopsis:
In 1957 a young, unknown Swiss artist, DIETER ROTH followed the woman he loved to Iceland. After 7 years amongst people who had little understanding of his talent he left the country, his wife and three children to become one of the most influential artists of the 20th. century. He spent most of his working life in Switcherland and Germany but Iceland remained a refuge, an inspiration and a second home to Dieter, who left a distinctive mark on the local art scene as well as the philosophy and work of other artists.
