Synopsis

An offbeat comedy set against the backdrop of Iceland's capital city nightclub scene. Hlynur (Hilmir Snaer Gudnason), whose girlfriend Hofi is exasperated by his lack of ambition, spends his days asleep and his evenings cruising the Reykjavik club and bar scene. This is all changed over the Christmas holidays when he begins to spend most of his time with Lola (Victoria Abril), a Spanish flemenco teacher and lesbian, who Hlynur finally persuades to sleep with him on New Year's Eve. When his mother Berglind returns from her holidays she also begins a relationship with Lola and then announces that Lola is pregnant. Hlynur's life is now much more complicated when he realises that he is probably the father, the baby will be brought up as his sibling and he begins to experience all sorts of feelings including suicidal ones.
