Summary Abandoned by his father, ignored by a desperate and decadent mother, angel faced Lakki wanders a nightmarish urban landscape. Finding solace only in his imagination, Lakki dreams of the day he can sprout wings and fly away from all his troubles. Abused by his gym teacher and his mother's current boy friend Lakki can find no peace. He cannot turn to his father as the man is distant and uncaring. Instead the 14 year old finds friends and harbor on the streets. He gets himself in trouble at school, starts playing with drugs, and tries to become a bully. He has no direction and no one to guide him. Even the friends he has made turn against him. It is only when things turn to the worst, and his fantasies are at their height does the real world finally reach in and save him from a tumble into the abyss of drugs and prostitution. Unlike the soft touch and sweet theme of Svend Wam's later film, Sebastian, Lakki is hard edged and gritty, a mirror for the face of the day's alienated urban youth.
