International Premiere | Nominated Best Debut

This Estonian film involves the interweaving stories of eight vastly different groups over the course of about twenty-four hours. The wide range of characters includes the Nietzsche quoting henchman and spoiled, misogynistic son of a wealthy and powerful criminal. Drug addicts are losing touch with reality while a trio of ordinary men tries to simply have a fun Friday night out at the club. Sex and extreme violence are rampant as the characters make terrible decisions that snowball into a darkly comedic and dramatic chain of events.

For most of the film, we’re laughing at the hilarious antics of these bizarre characters, and the film never ceases to recognize the spectacle that it represents, inserting comedy into the darkest of moments. However, the third act contains powerful visuals and a disturbing scene reminiscent of A Clockwork Orange that takes the film into darker territory. Out of the chaotic, surreal, and bloody mess we see the horrible repercussions of the characters’ actions and the filmmakers' skill is used to bring an odd sense of satisfaction to the whole endeavour. Eagle-eyed viewers will spot Estonia's Eurovision singer Ott Lepland amongst the cast.
