Helsinki Poets is a black comedy about five young poets who run their own Poetry Club House, The Black Box, and live in bohemian poverty according to a strict communist Manifesto, that promotes drinking a lot of vodka and being miserable in love. The problem is that nobody wants to publish poetry books anymore, and when one of them eventually dies of starvation, they decide to smuggle cocaine in exchange for getting their book published. Needless to say things get much worse from there. Finally they have to ask themselves… How much are they really prepared to suffer for the arts?
