Synopsis:
A gritty gangster film set in the outskirts of Copenhagen, Northwest follows small-time thief Casper. Still only 18, Casper’s self-serving ambition leads him to abandon the neighborhood boss, Jamal, for his rival Björn, who promises him more - more money and more responsibility. Tensions are high between the two gangs, however, and Casper soon finds himself and his family at the center of a conflict that threatens to destroy them.
