Wrestling with angels

"What would you do for a friend who's just waiting for death to come?"

“Wrestling with angels” is an emotional story about Erik (27) who has been diagnosed with a brain tumour and is just waiting for death to come. According to Erik's friends, apathic waiting for the grim reaper is too mainstream and boring, so they decide to fulfil Erik's last wish for an epic farewell to the world!

In the lead role we see the promising newcomer Christo Salminen with Erik's nurse being portrayed by the experienced and skilled Sixten Lundberg (Grottmannen). Further supporting roles are Erik's friends, played by Jon Henriksen, Rasmus Valentin (LAIT) and Nuclear Omnicide’s own guitarist Kasper Koutonen. This film by director Kimmo Laipio, a promising new name in the industry, is his biggest project yet. So be ready for tears, action and punk in the spectacular “Wrestling with angels”.
