Christopher (Baltasar Kormakur) is like a fish on dry land after being fired from a freight liner. He doesn't stand much chance of being rehired, having been caught in the act of illegal alcohol trafficking. Because of the high price of alcohol in Iceland, Christopher and his mates simply couldn't resist earning an extra buck by smuggling some vodka each time they sailed in. Faced with serious money problems, Christopher manages with a help of a friend (Ingvar Sigurdsson), to get his old job back. He is tempted to do a one last gig, determined to put all his problems behind him, once and for all.
