Summary
Gas Station takes us to cold and snowy Iceland, more particularly to the North-West coast of the island to a village called Flateyri. Flateyri lies next to a fjord and is surrounded by mountains. These mountains have the main role in our episode. Five years ago the village was hit by an avalanche killing 20 people. It was an enormous blow for a small community like Flateyri, and as a result a lot of people deserted the village, while others became depressed. Today the village has been largely rebuilt and the remaining villagers are trying to survive as best as they can in this remote spot. The petrol station - and its owner, Gogo - is crucial for this survival; it's about the only place people can go to for a cup of coffee, a quick bite or a decent conversation. It is the meeting point of the local community. Gogo tries to bring people together and motives her clients to make Flateyri a cosy place: she pours free coffee, gives free predictions on Sundays, and replaces the local teacher when he is sick. All things that make life more agreeable. This is the story of a village fighting the rough climate and rugged nature of Iceland
