Axel is a quiet young man who drives a flashy American car and works in an automobile shop. He lives with his mother whose life revolves around the television set. His sister, Maeja, is completely different. She lives for parties and spends most of her nights at Sodoma, a seedy downtown club run by three amateur gangsters who are involved in as many illegal activities as possible. The leader of the gang wants to get rid of Moli, a local bootlegger who has a monopoly on stolen goods. Axel, meanwhile, falls in love with Moli's stunning sister, Unnur, who is also Maeja's best friend. When the gangsters kidnap Unnur hoping this will lead them to Moli, Axel becomes involved in a madcap scheme to rescue his sweetheart.
