What is IndiePix Download?


A heist film tinged with black comedy, the story begins in 1991, with Estonia having just declared its independence from the Soviet Union. A band of gangsters hatch a plan to hijack the small Baltic nation's $1 billion worth of bullion, about to return to the capital after years of hiding in Paris. Toivo, a naive electrician, is commissioned to perform the key element in the plan - plummeting the city to darkness on the appointed midnight hour. Not a hardened criminal, Toivo is encouraged by his very pregnant wife to take the job. What follows is an edge-of-your-seat story involving childbirth, blackout, politics, and above all, love.
