Eleven Men Out

Ottar Thor is a champion soccer star, handsome and arrogant, who after winning a game casually tells a journalist he's gay. Imagine the surprise to his wife, a former Miss Iceland, his teenage son, already sullen and troubled, and his father, Thor's macho coach.

Much to the chagrin of his family, Ottar exchanges one sort of domesticity for another. After choosing a same-sex partner, he is kicked off the championship team where players are presumably straight. But, once a player, always a player and Ottar accepts a spot on a team in a basement soccer league that gay sportsmen from all over Iceland soon insist on joining.
