A tale of the lengths people will go for money, not out of greed, but out of fear. Indebted is the tale of Elli (Heidi Linden), a biology student with mounting bills, currently working two jobs but still struggling to make ends meet. When a one night stand misunderstands the nature of their encounter and leaves her €300 she succumbs to the idea of prostituting herself to make money.
Meanwhile, Iris (Kristina Puukko) is part of a team of brutal debt collectors. With a deadline looming to collect on a long list of debtors, she finds herself drawn to her colleague Andrei (Juha Arola) after a near fatal encounter. By coincidence, Andrei meets Elli and the two hit it off, starting to plan a future away from the world of spiralling debt that consumes them.
