After Kristófer (Baltasar Kormákur) was caught smuggling alcohol on a freight ship, he spent some time in jail. Upon his release, he works as a security guard. When he is offered to make one last turn with his old freighter, he takes up the offer. But things have changed since his absence. He gets caught upin a maelstrom of criminal activity and in no time he finds himself in the line of police fire. A high-velocity mixture of drama, action, thriller and comedy full of dry, melancholic humour typical of Iceland.
