Description: It's easy to empathize with adolescent apathy when it's 30 degrees below zero, nightfall at four o'clock in the afternoon, and you're knee-deep in graying snow sludge. But at 28 years old, Hlynur's a little long in the tooth to be making Nintendo, cyber porn, and getting wasted into next year his vocation. In addition to successfully resisting employment, adulthood, and even an inkling of responsibility, Hlynur has managed to stave off any committed co-mingling with the opposite sex -with the exception of his mother, that is, under whose authority and dotage he still lives. But it's amazing how a boy will snap to when he's aroused. Enter Lola, a spirited Spanish Flamenco teacher and an old friend of his mother's. After Lola and Hlynur share a drunken one-night stand, Hlynur is mortified to learn that Lola's been making house calls, only she's bypassed his door in favor of his mother's. And to add insult to injured astonishment, the happy couple is expecting their first child.
