The Óskar and Maggi brothers are easy to handle, but both have difficulty in intimate relationships, a problem with which they deal in different ways. Óskar tries to keep away from emotional ties while Maggi enters into a series of enduring relationships. His absent father has similar problems, but he managed to maintain his relationship with Guðrún, whom he met after his first wife, the mother of his children, died when the boys were young.
Veterinarian Anna faces a life-changing decision unconsciously influenced by Óskar. The young Ingibjörg, who wants to become an artist, tries to become an adult as fast as possible and his 13-year-old friends, Danni T and Danni M, follow their daily lives, which are increasingly occurring in Óskar’s house.
