Max Ovaska tells us the story of a woman, alone and pregnant who is a drug smuggler and risks it on a one last trip, close to the end of her pregnancy. Max has influences on action films and thriller and his direction shows it. We talked about this and more.

Carrier: Janika is in the advanced stages of pregnancy, a condition she exploits in order to smuggle drugs from Tallinn to Helsinki, since pregnant women don’t have to go through customs. As her date approaches, and with a new job waiting, Janika is nevertheless determined to do one last deal. But soon she feels the first contractions.
