As the Twin Towers collapse, a teenage boy in Reykjavik gets a cell phone and subsequently meets his first girlfriend. At the same time, a famous pop drummer gets into a car accident where a young girl loses her life.
Fifteen years later, these two men cross paths. Arnmundur is a restless graduate student abroad who spends his time on his phone seducing girls on dating apps. Stefan stopped drumming, became a ‘Corporate Viking’ and now runs a start-up company that he’s sure will change the world. But under the surface old secrets, disappointments and thirst for vengeance are seething.
