A hot summer in a small Estonian town at the end of the 1990s. Allar is approaching 30 and spends most of his time hanging out with his mates. They chat up women, get drunk at parties and race around like lunatics in their cars. On one of these excursions there's an accident which causes Allar to start thinking about his lifestyle. He starts cutting back on the extremes and tries to bring more meaning to his life. But the search for less excess and more sense proves far from easy. Full of powerful imagery and great music, TheDays That Confused portrays the last days of adolescence and was one of the biggest hits in Estonia in the last 20 years.
