Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
They Call Us Misfits follows a group of teenagers as they become recipients, then victims, of Sweden's welfare-state economy. The group eschews traditional social values, engaging in selling drugs and smugly criticizing those who adhere to a schedule and a steady job. This documentary-style film interviews young people who feel disenfranchised and out of place in the world but show little if any ambition to improve their station in life. They willingly speak of their future hopes, providing they have any, and their childhood experiences which led to their present situation and philosophical beliefs.
