Ippe and Papu are two hip-hop teenagers from Helsinki with a serious problem: They have made a contract with an older drug-dealer Kalle to provide customers. The boys fail to do this and end up in debt to Kalle. There seems to be only one solution, to smuggle drugs from Sweden across the border in order to pay the debt.Written by
Ipe and Papu are two messed-up 14-year olds from Helsinki. They work as small time LSD-dealers for a local drug lord, but the problem is that they boys seem to be using more than selling. Kalle gives them a last chance to pay him back by smuggling some drugs from Sweden. When the movie was first released it became as quite a shock to many, as it deals with juvenile narcotic use, a big taboo in Finland, as well as all other cultures. Ippe's mother is played by Kati Outinen, who later on won the best actress award in Cannes (for A Man Without a Past (2002)). It's a very realistic portrayal of a small Finnish subculture and for sure one of those movies that people will watch in the future when they want to learn about Finnish life in the late 90's.
