Otto (Peter Franzén), Matti (Niko Saarela), Ilkka (Lauri Nurkse) and Eero (Jasper Pääkkönen) are every mother’s dream. The brothers don’t drink, don’t smoke and don’t swear. Except that the quartet has carried out over a hundred robberies. Their strict father (Vesa-Matti Loiri) has brought them up in a house with no electricity, far removed from TV, fashion, chewing gum and other “sinful things”. When the father is taken into hospital, the boys are left to fend for themselves in a world that is foreign to them...In Finland, “Bad Boys” was a major box-officehit.
