Finland's spin on teenage dreams, delusion and denial.

Stuck in the suburbs of Helsinki, 20 year old Markus plans on moving to New York, his sights set on pursuing streetball fame. With little money behind him, he turns to the local loan shark – and when he discovers that Markus has no plans to repay him, things take a turn for the worse.

Engaging and well-written, Korso is an honest portrayal of the confusion and denial teenage life can bring when one is suddenly forced to balance ambition against reality.
