In 1977, a young 17 year old guy Valde lives with his mother in a small town Oulu, where an emerging city culture meets the prevailing religious and rural spirit. Punk and the new wave rock are breaking new ground all over the world and their rebellion speaks to Valde. While others listen to disco, Valde plays Lou Reed and New York Dolls. Everyone wears jeans. Valde has his music - and Pike, the prettiest girl in class who Valde secretly loves. When Pike wins the ‘Miss Blue Jeans’ contest and takes as her boyfriend the bourgeois Henri, Valde puts all his eggs in one basket.
