Guilt and redemption under the northern lights.

A German couple, Niels and Maria, and their teenage son Markus move to the Norwegian coastal town of Hammerfest, hoping for a new beginning in the land of endless twilight. Instead they find themselves drifting further apart. Niels submerges himself in his work as an engineer and an affair with a co-worker, Maria works overtime and Markus struggles at school. One night, after a double shift, Maria’s car collides with something – or someone – on the road. But from tragedy comes mercy: the accident catalysing all three family members towards reconciliation.

Mature, involving and exotic, Mercy soberingly and affectively observes the consequences of an accident against the sweeping arctic landscape.

“Mercy will appeal to resilient arthouse audiences who are not adverse to a dark night of the soul every now and again.” – Screen Daily
