Description

In 1941, Iceland was full of English and American troops. They changed the whole country but particularly affected the women, many of whom made regular trips to the barracks to dance, drink and get intimate with the soldiers. The locals called this The Situation. But not only women were affected. Forget Me Nots is a love story between a young Icelandic man and an English soldier. Set up as a series of overlapping monologues, it shows them telling their story. It’s about love, new priorities and the people that got hurt along the way.
