Plan B

Plan B focuses on the plight of a bunch of losers in Reykjavík: a motley crew of small-time thieves, crooks, and junkies living in a cloud of self-delusion and fantasy.


Two men in their late twenties, Jim and Frank, old friends from childhood, meet again after many years. Jim, who is trying hard to get his life back on track, is soon lured back into his old habits of drugs and crime by Frank and his pals from the old neighborhood. They set out to help Frank's father break out of jail who, in return, finances their "shopping spree" to Amsterdam.
