Pity the Lovers

Brothers Óskar (37) and Maggi (35) are easy going but both have a hard time with close relationships, a problem they deal with in different ways. Óskar tries to stay clear of emotional ties while Maggi jumps into a series of short-lasting relationships. Their absentminded father (70) has similar problems but has miraculously managed to hold on to his relationship with Guðrún (69) whom he met after his first wife, the mother of his sons, died when the boys were young.

The veterinary Anna (37) is facing a life-changing decision, unwittingly influenced by Óskar. The young wanna-be artist Ingibjörg tries to become a grown-up as fast as she can and the 13-year-old friends Danni T and Danni M plod on with their daily lives, which increasingly take place in Óskar’s house.
