Icelandic comedy drama following the life of top Icelandic footballer Ottar Thor (Björn Hlynur Haraldsson) after he comes out as gay to his teammates and the public. Though Ottar is comfortable with his own sexuality, his revelation greatly disconcerts others and it isn't long before he finds himself relegated to the bench for his club KR and, ultimately, looking for a new team. Ottar elects to join a small amateur team made up of other gay men and continues playing football, but his personal life remains troubled. Not only are his ex-wife and 13-year-old son among those struggling the most to adjust to his orientation, but his father, the Chairman of KR, wants him back at the club. There is a catch though: to return to the team Ottar must renounce his sexuality...
