This isn't the Iceland of geysers or midnight sun that Junior has returned to, nor is "Junior" a child. He's a tall, awkward young man with a sweet but sometimes exasperatingly passive disposition. And he's come home to Iceland with his fidgety, restless, impatient friend Rupert. They've come loaded with issues – and they've landed in King's Road, a tacky, run-down trailer park somewhere in barren, wind-swept Iceland. With the country in an unparalleled financial mess, money is on just about everyone's mind. Junior, who lives in Germany, hopes that his dad – called "Senior" – can help him out with some cash. He needs it to pay the debts that Rupert has incurred for a show they put on, which flopped, and for drugs and various other necessities of life. But Senior has no money for Junior, and not much interest in him either. He's too desperate just trying to stay afloat and avoid being pulled down by his mother, who carries a stuffed seal around with her like a pet, and his blonde girlfriend, who depends on Senior for practically everything. The harried Senior hardly notices the other human wrecks populating the trailer park: the park's terminally ill-tempered administrator; a slacker musician who's nowhere ready to become a father to his girlfriend's unborn child; two very different middle-aged twins whose glamorous actress mother abandoned them years ago and comes back to see them in a brief cameo appearance… And in the midst of all this colorful humanity, Junior, who finally reaches out to his father and learns that life – just like King's Road – isn't a dead-end street.
