With his health deteriorating, Siggi Hjartarson, owner and curator of the Icelandic Phallological Museum must make some tough decisions if he hopes to see his collection complete in this dark comedic documentary about his 40 year obsession. In his search for a human phallus, Hjartarson is faced with a dilemma, to take an American specimen nicknamed “Elmo”, which is being offered with most unusual and demanding conditions, or wait for the better-known, Icelandic unit which is to be harvested after the death of long-lived national celebrity, whose sexual exploits and penis size are apparently legendary (Klaus Ming September 2014).
