Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
The brother of a former beauty queen discovers that his angelic sister is far from the innocent beauty he thought in this breakneck black comedy from Swedish filmmaker Ulf Malmros. Upon returning from Stockholm to the quaint rural village from which he came, Erik (Jonas Rimeika) is dismayed to discover that his sweet little sister Susie (Tuva Novotny) has gone missing. Diving headlong into the shady underbelly of the small town in a desperate attempt to locate his long-lost sibling, Erik is shocked to find himself following a trail that involves everyone from heroin-addicted movie buffs to corrupt policemen and fearsome gangsters.
