Young man´s sexual impulses go haywire when he discovers the woman he has just been to bed with happens to be his mother´s lesbian lover, and may be carrying his child. Living on a social security in the protected environment of his mother´s home, Hlynur has never felt the urge to venture beyond the confines of his microcosmic world: 101 Reykjavík.

Synopsis

A 30 year old man still lives with his mother and spends his days drinking, watching porn and surfing the net. His mother’s Spanish flamenco teacher, Lola, moves in with them for Christmas. On New Year’s Eve, while his mother is away he finds out Lola is a lesbian, but also ends up having rampart, drunken sex with her. His mother returns only to break the news that she is also a lesbian and she and Lola are in love. Lola becomes pregnant with his child and she and his mother plan to bring the baby up together. Failing in his suicide attempt, he matures, gets a job, and lives together with his mother, her lover and their (his) baby boy.
