Two nineteen-year-old boys outgrow their birthplace and don’t know what to do. The daughter of a local celebrity, Anna, suddenly enters their lives and brings mystery, suspense and desire. Seemingly boring and settled town slowly reveals its dark side. Places is a new project by the makers of Walking too fast - Film of the Year 2010. The film is set in the 90’s in a small one-horse town where nothing and everything is possible. A drama about love, loss and vengeance.
