Indebted

Director: Márton "Mara" Jelinkó.
Elli (Heidi Lindén), a university student, has a problem. Living in the poor area, but partying in the upscale clubs of the city is taking its financial toll, that can not be covered by her part time job as a cleaning lady. Even after her grandmothers antique necklace has been pawned, there just doesn't seem to be enough money for her lifestyle and to pay back the loans she has accumulated. So she decides to make money out of her one night stands and soon she settles into the lifestyle of a call-girl. Iiris (Kristiina Puukko), who has been forced into working with a small-time criminal group, has a problem of her own. She is in love with her colleague, Andrei (Juha-Tapio Arola), who doesn't even notice it. In a macho environment, where debts are collected via fists, there wouldn't be any room for the mushy stuff anyway. However, neighter of the women can foresee how much things will go wrong when Elli and Andrei meet one night and love springs its head up between them. Iiris is not going to just observe this from the sidelines and Elli is not going back to her old life without Andrei any more. Only when the women are forced to work together, do they come face to face with the facts that there are some mistakes that cannot be undone just like that. ”Indebted” is the debut feature as a director for Márton Jelinkó, who has worked in the Finnish independent scene as a cinematographer, for many years. It was made on a shoestring budget, using digital acquisition and utilizing an experimental improvisational method of working with the actors and combining that with the visual style of the camerawork.
