Living in the Herttoniemi suburb in Eastern Helsinki, 12-year-olds Antti and Muhis have been best friends since kindergarten. Even with the underlying racism and anti-Somali sentiments that plague the community, the boys’ friendship has never been challenged, despite Muhis’ Somali background. That is until one night, when the boys find themselves in the middle of an unexpected confrontation that ends in a local drunk and racist being pushed off a cliff. Antti and Muhis must now hold onto the terrible secret of that night while navigating the dangerous town shaken by this accident and maintaining their friendship at the same time.
