Single mother Anna (poet and rock musician Didda Jonsdottir) from Reykjavík is fed up with Icelandic cold weather. She decides to sell her business and emigrate. Her “business” is selling dope. Unfortunately her successor is low on cash but promises to pay her in 48 hours. Two days that propel Anna through numerous family adventures, bringing together customers, friends and relatives for a goodbye party in her kitchen. A quirky feel-good movie full of Icelandic reggae.
