This film is actually two one hour stories, the first based on a Stephen King story called the "Chattering Teeth" about a man who picks up a hitchhiker and the second is based on a Clive Barker story called "The Body Politic" about hands that rebel against the body.
The picture is about the inexplicable property of a person to fill with energy and life even the most frightening and abandoned places. This is a portrait of the abandoned city of New Idrija and the last years of the lives of those who spent their youth in believing in an alternative version of the “American Dream”.
Director Andres Puustusmaa movie based on Andres Anvelt novel.
