Cherry Tobacco (2014)

Original title: Kirsitubakas

Feature film | Suhtedraama Duration 93:00

Cherry Tobacco is a youthful relationship drama about falling in love for the first time. For psychological reasons and because of societal norms, making decisions becomes much more difficult – especially if the feelings that are awakening are directed towards an older man. Forbidden love is a lot like war – there are no right choices.
