Stupid Young Heart (Hölmö Nuori Sydän) is a story about the first love of lightly built, carefree Lenni and gorgeous and popular Kiira. Not yet even properly in a relationship, they discover that they are expecting a baby, and decide to keep it – partly as a statement to their families who have lost touch with what goes on in the teenagers’ lives. Lenni then has nine months to become a man. Having grown up without a father figure, Lenni receives some yearned for adult attention from an unlikely friend JANNE (40), a member of a right wing activist group.

When the movie starts we see a rehearsal of Kiira and her dance group. The girls are imitating the world they know from the music videos. With big and bold typography we gave the scene the look of a music video. The girls are the stars. The typography is also referring to the big typography of the teenagers' street wear.
