Finland - 119min - dir. Zaida Bergroth

Finnish with English subtitles

Raised by her cautious single father, Anna approaches life with fear and uncertainty, and his recent death exacerbates her anxieties. Estranged sister Angela is Anna's exact opposite: an exotic dancer who travels from one seedy dump to the next, making money on the side by blackmailing her more vigorous patrons. When they reconnect, Angela is arguing with the rest of her troupe and is forced to ask her sister for help. As both soon discover, risk-averse Anna may have worse instincts than her sister.

"In Miami, a winding road trip of a slow-burning crime thriller, the exotic-dance gyrations of half-sisters Anna and Angela have a silly, sexy charm. It’s the offstage dance between them, and the shifting interplay of affection, admiration, distrust and resentment, that fuels this absorbing journey through genre territory..(Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter)
