Star Boys is a powerful story of two families being torn apart by disintegrating moral values when the sexual revolution arrives at a conservative and religious small town in Northern Finland. The film takes us inside the lives of two families through the eyes of the children, 13-year-old Epiphany singers or Star boys, forced to observe from too close a distance the consequences of their parents’ sexual liberation and endless need for love and freedom.
Star Boys, whilst dealing with heavy themes, is ultimately a warm and positive survival story portraying the persistence and capacity of children to get over even most difficult experiences in life.
