Life in a fishbowl portrays three intertwined stories that take place in Reykjavik in 2006.

Móri is a poet and a drunkard, battling with his past and searching for forgiveness for the unforgiveable.

Eik, who is a young mother and nursery school teacher, moonlights as a hooker in order to support herself and her daughter. She has to struggle to make ends meet because she is utterly estranged from her extremely well-to-do family.

Sölvi is a famous former footballer who is making his way up the corporate ladder. Gradually, he becomes entangled in a world of corruption and moral complacency and bit by bit he starts to lead a double life.
