Movie synopsis: The life of young Pike used to be a never-ending colourful party, but the world of drugged fun has ended and she's now leaving prison with an eight-month old daughter. Shouts echo through the walls of her social housing and two men from her past soon appear in her new life: her former boyfriend Lalli, who tries to drag her back to the spiral of destruction and violence, and a unconventional police inspector Elias Kaski offers a helping hand. The harsh drama about the dark side of contemporary Finland, based on the work of an acclaimed writer and criminologist, Marko Kivi, was shot by one of the most successful Scandinavian directors of last years, Aku Louhimies (Frozen Land), and produced by the company responsible for Iron Sky.
