"Jaana and Bettan are 13 years old. The best of friends, they share an interest in wrestling. Jaana's goal is for them to compete in the advanced group, and they are well on their way. But then Umut arrives on the scene and everything changes. As Umut is a boy, Bettan begins behaving differently, and Jaana is forced to mock her friend's new motives to preserve their friendship. Brottas is for anyone who has ever experienced such intense pent-up emotions which eventually push one over the edge. Here the emotions are released - on the wrestling mat."
