101 Reykjavik

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.
