After being reacquainted with a childhood friend Stebbi joins the drug trade world in order to pay off his debt. The last few years of the millennium marked a transformational period for the Icelandic underworld. What had been a relatively innocent playground for petty criminals and "hobby pushers" progressed into the organized and violent industry that prevails today. Black’s Game takes place during turbulent times, when occured violent events shook Icelandic society profoundly. It is a badass gangster thriller that owes something to the Pusher trilogy of executive producer Nicolas Winding Refn, what it really wants to be is Goodfellas. Inspired by actual events.
