Sveinn is a reclusive, middle-aged bachelor who devotes his life to creating and selling beautiful custom-made sex dolls. Loa is a divorced mother of two, whose eldest daughter's increasing isolation is giving her real cause for concern. Their lives collide on the evening when Loa's car breaks down outside Sveinn's house. Against his better judgment, Sveinn offers to help and Loa ends up staying for dinner, falling asleep in her chair, and stealing away in the morning with a sex doll - with the notion that it might somehow help her daughter. When Sveinn goes to the city in search of his creation, he quickly finds himself drawn into Loa's complicated family life. Funny, and touching, and never far from tragedy, The Creator is an affectingly original story of an unlikely friendship and an unlikely cure for the problem of never quite feeling real.
