Synopsis

Part-time laborer and amateur artist, Paul leads an unremarkable life like any other, until his world is disrupted by vivid revelations of the afterlife. At first a welcome respite from reality, his waking visions soon reveal a demonic conspiracy at work within his own community. One by one, prominent members of high society fall victim to a series of mysterious assassination attempts. As the government scrambles to contain the rising panic of the ruling class, public disillusionment grows. Amidst the maelstrom, Paul becomes entangled in a web of powerful elite, evangelical cults, and a plot that could not only bring down the country's economy, but also incite the total collapse of society. Filmed before the 2008 Icelandic banking crash that shocked the world, Messenger is a prediction of chaos turned prophetic. While many of its projections have already been fulfilled by recent events, one can only hope that the remainder will not.
