Óttar Thor is a champion soccer star, handsome and arrogant, who after winning a game casually tells a journalist he's gay. Imagine the surprise to his ex-wife, a former Miss Iceland, his teenage son, already sullen and troubled, and his father, Thor's macho coach. A breezy and feisty dramatic comedy directed by Róbert I. Douglas, this is a story about a man who, much to the chagrin of his family, exchanges one sort of domesticity for another. After choosing a same-sex partner, he is kicked off the championship team where players are presumably straight. But once a player, always a player, and Óttar is offered a spot on a team in a basement soccer league that gay sportsmen from all over Iceland soon insist on joining.
