Dryland (2020)

Students film | Drama Duration 17:00

An older, experienced smuggler, Estonian and female; the other a young Finnish boy doing this for the first time. These characters would not truly know each other, and the conflict would be about whether or not they can trust one another. Set up In the 1930s, while Finland enforced prohibition, Estonian bootleggers made firewater along the coast and smuggled it across the sea.
