Gang violence, racism, and minority cultures collide in this 1997 Swedish film. Compared to "A Clockwork Orange" and "Trainspotting," the film is based on a true story of the murder of a young racist in the Stockholm suburbs by a group of very young Latino boys during the Stockholm Water Festival. Flamholc uses a "Rashomon" technique to show different accounts of the incident. It has become a cult classic in Sweden.
