Axel drives a big American car, works at a petrol station and lives in a small room in his mother's flat. His sister, Mæja, has a more colorful lifestyle. She's got lots of friends that love going to nightclubs and parties. Axel keeps trying, without success, to open Mæja's eyes and make her come to her senses. One day their different worlds collide and overnight Axel experiences the nightlife in Reykjavik at its worst.
