The Icelandic film shows Thor and Kristján, who live in a small finishing village. The two become inseparable, hanging out with their older teenage sisters and friends, they get into scrapes and have miscevioush adventures. The boys come from broken families, one has an alcoholic father and the other a single mother who has just got back onto the dating scene. The two get away from the problematic domestic life by spending time in each other's company. The life of early adolescence is captured innocently as sex and the challenges is never far from anyone’s minds.
