Coming-of-age film about teenagers Neky and Eppo, who share their opinions of B-films on their video blog. But Neky’s life changes so rapidly and drastically that he suddenly can’t muster the enthusiasm for inferior movies anymore.
Neky and Eppo are best friends. The teenagers like to spend their time watching B-movies and share their opinions on the video blog Eppo's and Neky’s Cultcorner. But the life of an adolescent isn’t a bed of roses. Neky’s depressed mother lies on the couch all day, his sister is always on his back and his father has a new Thai girlfriend. His stout friend Eppo acts like a magnet on all the pests at school. Neky's life changes drastically when he receives a mysterious message in a bottle and gothic punkers arrive in his neighbourhood. Neky suddenly paints his hair black and ventures a first step inside the cool punks’ home. Meanwhile, Eppo develops an obsessive fascination with a new B-film, but Neky can’t find the time nor the mood to share his old friend’s enthusiasm.
