Sigga and Didi are sisters who lost their mother when very young and were separated. Since then their lives have taken very different paths and their characters have come as different as black and white. When they meet in their twenties the pair take a run through Reykjavik, ripping off drug smugglers and dealers and partying while escaping from the thugs.
