        • What is it?: A new adaptation of one of Nobel Prize winner Halldor Laxness' most loved novels. As an unloved foster child on a farm in rural Iceland, Olaf Karason has only one consolation: the belief that one day he will be a great poet. World Light demonstrates how the creative spirit can survive in even the most crushing environment and even the most unpromising human vessel.
