My Best Friend
Den Bästa Vännen
Inga and Terttu are two completely different ladies in their sixties. Terttu is Finnish-speaking, out-spoken and wild. She likes to drink and her best friend is her dog Pentu. Inga is Swedish-speaking and organized, taciturn, and has a dark secret. These two would never have met if not for a store robbery they stumbled into, changing their lives. Both live alone in Helsinki, just oldies roaming the streets from store to pub and home. Nobody even notices them unless they get involved in a robbery. The film is set in modern Finland, where alcohol and loneliness among seniors are major concerns. But it is never too late to follow a dream. Even if it's scary.
