Big Boy - Iso Poika (FIN)"Is a first-grader still allowed to come to your lap?" the boy asks when the last day of the summer turns to night. Iso Poika is a documentary film about 7-year old Eeli, who feels very small and very big at the same time. Eeli is living in the middle ground between fear and safety, in the labyrinth of familiar and unfamilar things. He becomes a big brother, learns to read and learns to lie. His heart beats for a girl for the first time, and he promises to swear less if his friends promise it, too!
Iso Poika is a documentary which shows how adjusting to the requirements of the society takes its toll, and also how delightful it is when things go your way. What does it feel like when you don't know if you are big or small?
