The Girl and the Rat

Tyttö ja rotta

When the Hunter becomes the hunted one.

After running away from the law, Metro lives in a Berlin house about to be demolished. One morning, as Metro is returning from a graffiti hit, she is met with a pile of bodies, among which is Metro’s close friend, Koskelo. From the attic of the squat, an entire wall with a piece by the world-renowned graffiti artist Banksy is missing. When the piece reappears on an internet auction website, Metro decides to look into it. The chase brings Metro back to Finland, the country that she believed she had left behind for good. In her home town she is forced to face the guard, who killed her lover, as well as her old friends who betrayed her. Soon, the hunter becomes the hunted one.
