Pike has just been released from the prison. She is now a mother of an infant, and can afford no more mistakes. But her ex-lover Lalli shows up, dragging along with him both the past Pike longed to forget, but also the passion between the two. Pike has decided not to return to her old life, whatever it takes.

Director Aku Louhimies says: „Though the Nordic welfare state wears a functioning facade, much is open to criticism. Unique examination of our society made me lunge for this story. Good luck and misfortune are two sides of life in which the flip of a coin is swift. On occasion, one cannot escape the requirement of decision. To live, you must be the captain of your own soul. Here lies the gist of 8-ball.” Film from the production company of the infamous sci-fi Iron Sky.
