A suburban teenager is drawn into a hellish world of violence in this fascinating and tragic tale from first-time director Pieter Kuijpers. Living at home and neglected by his wealthy stepfather, seven-teen-year-old Stan has no interest in school and is bored by his dull surroundings. His chance for adventure comes in the form of Maikel, a devil-eyed, long-haired, hot-tempered criminal. Accompanied by Maikel's beautiful lover Anna, they embark on a series of increasingly dangerous and brutal crimes. Stan and Maikel begin to emotionally spiral out of control as they lose their grip on reality. Based on the true story of a group of young killers who shook Holland in the mid-'90s, Godforsaken is a furious, heart-stopping, unforgettable ride.
