15-year-old skater boy Lenni's life is thrown upside down when he accidentally impregnates his popular girlfriend, Kirra, during a party. Both grew up to indifferent parents in an impoverished neighbourhood of Helsinki, and therefore stay together to give the child a home they never had themselves. But their good intentions take a turn for the worst when Lenni seeks advice from the leader of an extreme-right fundamentalist organization.
