Official introduction: "Pojista tulee esikuviensa kaltaisia" - "Boys grow up in the likeness of their models."

"A short film, a growing-up story, about brotherhood and a chain of a Legacy from the father and the grandfather which will destroy them if it is not broken. Two brothers, aged six and twelve, have a fateful meeting during one summer day with two grown-up brothers. The meeting forces everyone to make choices with irreversible outcomes."

AA: Fiction, a short story film, a violent family story. The grandfather's legacy is a handgun. The two sets of brothers meet with a fatal outcome, but there is hope in the younger generation. Well-made, with good performances by the young actors.
