This disturbing film follows the exploits of Taavi, a teenager who filters the external world through the lens of his video camera. His obsession quickly turns horrific, though, after he tapes sexual acts that take place at one of his parties. Soon, he and his friends make a pact to meet and screen erotic footage that each of them takes, but their seamy pastime turns into a dangerous game of one-upmanship. Jukka-pekka Siili directs.
