Sharp-suited Erik and Atli, a petty criminal just released from prison, are stuck in a downward spiral. When the duo teams up to smuggle cocaine into Iceland, inside plastic pellets swallowed by a young Polish mule, their future is about to change. But things go wrong when a rule-breaking cop starts closing in on them and their mule falls ill.
