The 14-year-old Simo lives in a run-down high-rise block of flats near Helsinki with his older brother Ilkka and a mother who is unable to cope. The next day Ilka will start a jail sentence. Until then he must look after Simo and take the boy with him on his last tour through the quarter. Throughout a long, hot summer day, and a marginally cooler night, Simo witnesses a number of rude encounters - also between the sexes. And he is exposed to his brother's macho talk. When a neighbour apporaches, all of Simo's emotional insecurity is vented in one senseless act of violence. Pirjo Honkasalo, the “grande dame” of Finnish cinema has created a visually brilliant literary adaptation that bears her unique signature - and the masterful psychograph of a disturbed adolescent.
