When Anna is reunited with her estranged half-sister Angela, who arrives back in her hometown to dazzle the locals with her glamorous exotic dancer troupe, she gladly trades her small-town life for an adrenaline-fueled existence on the road, andembraces the world of exotic dancing.
But when an overdue loan payment draws both of them into a reckless blackmailing scheme, and as the duo are led deeper into the underworld of large-scale government corruption, they must rely on their new bond of sisterhood to save themselves from danger.
Directed by Zaida Bergroth (Finland, 2017).
“Bergroth and her two fine leads create a compelling glimpse of life as it’s improvised — a dance between the muck and the angels, dreaming of more.” —Shari Linden, The Hollywood Reporter
