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. [15]
